Windows 8 is different because it isn't supposed to boot to the Desktop, but instead show the ModernUI/Start Screen instead. It seems that if you put a program in that registry key, Windows will "sort-of" boot to the desktop. My program puts up a messagebox on the screen saying that it is done working and clicking OK will exit the program. But the screen is black with a blue (unpopulated) taskbar on the screen. I can get back to the Start Screen by pressing the Windows key, but I would rather be able to send some sort of command that puts that back up instead.
So is there any other way to open/close the Start Screen without sending keypresses?
