    Question about Pokki, after market START program


    With Pokki installed, when win 8 boots up it now goes to the Desktop. Which is great.

    However, it also opens my USER folder and displays in on the desktop. I would rather that it did not.

    I have looked at Pokki's settings but can't see anything there to stop opening my USER folder.

    Does anyone have a fix for this. Thank you.

    Perhaps try Classic Shell instead...???

    Thanks, Rickins. I will download and try it. I suspect that I should uninstall Pokki first.

Folks, I'm reading about Pokki for the first time, which has about half a million free downloads. Does it take over your GUI? The screen shots seem to indicate that it does.
