    1. Right click on the taskbar and select Properties in desktop mode.

    2. Click on the Navigation tab.

    3. Check “Go to the desktop instead of Start when I sign in.”

    4. Check “Show my desktop background on Start” also if you want the Start Screen to have the same wallpaper as the desktop.
