WIndows 8 Pro bypass the Start Screen and go directly to desktop

I have a Windows 8 tablet which is basically going to be used for a thin client.  I have set it so that it loads a vb script loop to launch a remote desktop session and continually re-open that session if it gets closed.  I have locked down all the settings I can via GPO however one element evades me.

When Windows 8 loads, it starts in the new Metro start screen.  Anything that needs to load automatically does so on the desktop and is not seen until you leave the start screen.

I have tried this method to bypass the start screen without success:

Does anyone know how to jump directly to the desktop when logged in without the use of a keyboard?

Worked!  Thanks.  I had trouble with it, but turns out there was a condition to only run when on AC, of course the tablet was not plugged in so it wouldnt run.  ONce I plugged it in, it ran properly.  

Removed the AC Condition, works on Batteries now too.  Thank you
