asked on 

Windows 8.1 desktop with no icons

What's worse than Metro? Possibly an alternative shell that consists of an empty desktop with no icons and a largely empty taskbar save for a little a Windows key icon on the far left (dead) and caption 'Desktop' on the far right that opens a sluggish menu that only works on its leaf nodes - e.g. you can't open Control Panel, only items in Control Panel.

I thought this was a 'start menu' by an outfit called 'IOBit' but it certainly didn't change a thing when i uninstalled it.

I never thought i'd pine for Metro, but can someone tell me how to restore the default UI?
