    No longer able to view desktop...ONLY full start screen. HELP!


    My computer has a mind of its own apparently. I can no longer view my regular desktop. All I get is the full start screen with all the stupid tiles on it. I have tried changing my settings, restarting, shutting down and rebooting, nothing is working. When I click the windows logo all I get is that same full start screen. Am I missing something?

    All I want is for it to show me my regular, normal desktop. Not these stupid tiles!
