    Going from the Lock Streen to Desktop


    Since upgrading to 8.1 I have started going directly to the Start Screen from the Lock Screen. Before in Windows 8, I went to Desktop. I have my taskbar at the bottom of Desktop which contains all the icons I want to access and it means now I am going back to Desktop from the Start. How can I organize my laptop that I don't directly to Start Screen from Lock Screen please but go to Desktop?
