Is there a way to set Windows 8.1 (Pro) to boot to the desktop rather than to the dumb Modern UI tiles after you log in?

Since I can't get my Start menu back, at least starting at the desktop is better than the Modern UI tiles (I use a lot of different programs throughout the day--enough to not want to pin them all to the default "Start" screen).

Right click on the task bar, go to Properties, under the Navigation tab check "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start".
