    The Win key all by itself, when clicked from the desktop view, should always take you to Metro Start unless Classic Shell reconfigured it. In which case, there's probably a Classic Shell setting to change it back. The standard operation for the Win key is to toggle you between Metro Start and whatever app you were running last. From Metro Start's perspective, the desktop looks like an app.
