How to Boot straight to desktop in windows 8/8.1

Issue:"Boot straight to desktop in windows 8/8.1"
Method 1 :

The Metro interface in Windows 8.1 makes sense on a touch-enabled device, but on a traditional computer, it's only an afterthought. In the first iteration of Windows 8, it was hard to get around on the desktop without the Start screen, hot corners, app switcher bar and other elements of the touch interface getting in your way. Windows 8.1 has been improved and includes features that let you boot directly to the desktop and keep Metro elements out of your way. If you prefer to stay on the traditional desktop as much as possible, here's a look at how to do it.

The first thing you'll want to do with your new Windows 8.1 machine is set it up to keep Metro out of your way with its new settings. Right-click the taskbar, click Properties and select the Navigation tab in the resulting screen. Here's where you can tame the majority of the annoying Metro features that pop up. You can disable hot corners, the app switcher bar, and most importantly, boot directly to the desktop.
Method 2 :

Open the Regedit and navigate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
Expand it and find software, again expand then find Microsoft.
Navigate to Windows->CurrentVersion->ExplorerYou will see RPenabled in right side of the registry key.
Change the value from 1 to 0.
