I have a Windows 8.1 VM that several users will need to log in to for using a shared application.  I get why the start screen is useful on your own desktop/laptop/tablet but it's totally useless for this VM.  Is there a setting in 8.1 that allows all users to log in directly to the desktop when connected via RDP?
