    Go To Desktop when opening My Laptop

    I have a Acer Aspire 7250-3821 laptop windows 8 when I turn on my laptop I go through 4-steps to get to my desktop. I would love to raise the top on my laptop and go straight to my desktop I have tried to reset what my laptop does but nothing I do gives me the start up I would like to have. Hopefully someone in windows 8 forum can advise me as how to accomplish the startup I need when raising the top of my Acer Aspire laptop. Any HELP would be greatly appreciated.

    I installed Classic Shell which gives the start menu button and will bring you straight to the traditional desktop.
