This is most likely the first question you will ask when using Windows 8 for the first time. Do not worry the desktop is still there. The first screen you will come to after starting Windows 8 is the Start screen. The start screen contains Windows Apps (these are also sometimes referred to as Metro apps). When you touch or click an app it will come to life and fill the screen. Installed applications can be found here as well. There are also applications in other areas. More on that in a bit. How to get to the desktop from the Windows 8 start screen. 1. Touch or click the tile named Desktop.
