Windows update automatically updated my 8.1 version...Like it, but my computer now starts in the old desktop style...I have got used to the 'tile' version and would like to revert to that. However, cannot find a way to achieve this...I will be grateful for any advice on how to do it.

Go to desktop and right click the taskbar, properties, navigation tab, untick the box for When I sign in or close all applications on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start.

My thanks to you rdave13.

All as it was...a happy 80+ something.

Guardsman2 glad you are sorted. Like you I also like to see the Start page with all the tiles showing. Great for email notifications and other tiles such as weather, photos and so on. 80+ eh and already a master of Win 8.1 .

Many thanks for your feedback, much appreciated.
