assuming your in Windows 8.1:

Right-click on an empty area of your taskbar, and click on the "Properties" option.
Click on the Navigation tab.
Click the checkbox to the left of "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the Desktop instead of Start".
Click the "Apply" button in the bottom right corner of the dialog box.
Click Ok button.
