since updating 8.1, my laptop starts up in desktop mode. I prefer the tiles display. Please can someone advise how to change start up screen on start up thanks Peter

When you are in Desktop Mode, click on any blank area in the TASKBAR. Then click on Properties, Click on the Navigation Tab and untick the box under Start Screen that says "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the Desktop instead of Start." and Untick the box that says "Show my desktop background on Start"
