By default, the Start Screen is setup to use metro apps and Windows has those apps as program defaults.

I would recommend you pin Desktop items to the Start Screen and remove the apps you don't need or care for. The easy way to do that is to right click on a folder or a Library and Pin to Start, then drag the tile where ever you feel. It takes a few minutes to mold it, but after that, it's great!

Some Windows 8 visual styles can be found here, but unfortunately that site is addicted to themepacks more than VS (from there I post themepacks at this forum)
