Windows 8: reverting to the older style desktop

An alternative way of reverting to the old style desktop is to use a .reg file.  Just use notepad to save these three lines into a file and make sure that you give it a .reg extension.  Right-click the resulting file and 'Merge'.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"RPEnabled"=dword:00000001

; Change the Desktop with RPEnabled

Note 5: To revert to the Metro UI set: "RPEnabled"=dword:00000000
