Skip Metro Suite: bypass the start screen and disable Charms Bar & Switch List in Windows 8
Previously we reviewed app Classic Starter, and today I want to tell you about another tool called Skip Metro Suite, which has a similar effect – skips the start screen and default loads the desktop.
The main difference between the Skip Metro Suite from other similar apps is that it can not only skip the start screen, but also allows you to disable the Switch List, Charms Bar and Hot Corners (access Switch List and Charms Bar by moving the mouse cursor to the corners of the screen).
You can disable the Switch List and Charms Bar together or separately, depending on your needs. In any case, even if you disable both features, they will still be available using hot keys.
To disable the start-up screen start-up screen, the Switch List and Charms Bar, simply select the appropriate items and press the Save Settings button.
Please note that the app only works on 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 8 RTM. I have not been able to successfully run the program on Windows 8 Release Preview.
