The user session ends up on the desktop instead of the Microsoft Windows 8 Start screen after logon

Version 1

    Problem

    The user session ends up on the desktop instead of the Microsoft Windows 8 Start screen after logon. This applies to a scenario where the option "Go to the desktop instead of Windows 8 Start screen after logon (Windows 8.1 / 2012 R2 and up)" in "Composition > Desktop > Lockdown and Behavior" is not enabled.

    Cause

    Microsoft Windows 8.1 Update is installed. This update is also referred to as Microsoft Windows 8.1.1.

    With this update users will boot to the desktop as default.

    Solution

    This behavior is by design of Microsoft Windows.
