    Hello professorb, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Setting RPEnabled to 0 in the registry location below to disable the Metro UI in Windows 8 no longer works.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

    It only worked in the pre-releases of Windows 8.

    Sorry.

    You could try classic shell that will skip Metro UI and go to desktop.
