Booting up automatically takes me to the desktop after a few seconds. Tags: Windows 8 Desktops Computers Last response: March 15, 2014 7:58 PM in Windows 8 Share anxiousinfusion March 15, 2014 3:15:35 PM When I turn on my second computer it loads to the start screen (which I want it to do) but then automatically switches to desktop. It is not set to boot to desktop. This is very annoying as it pulls me out of whatever app I first open. Is this a bug? Please help.

The issue went away but I will wait a while before declaring Raptr the cause. The behavior of switching to desktop only after a few seconds suggested that it was related to some startup program.
