I just installed my new Win8.1 computer and am gradually acclimating to it. That said, I've encountered a (minor) issue.
When I click on the windows icon on the lower-left of my screen it brings up the Start Screen (with the tiles -- I think that's what you call them) representing the various programs. One of the tiles clearly indicates that it's for my desktop -- I can even see the wallpaper I installed; however, when I click on it, it takes me back to what appears to be the application I am currently using.
How then, can i most easily access the actual desktop (from both the Start screen) and elsewhere.
