comment How do I run a Metro-Application from the command-line in Windows 8?
Yeah, it is really annoying. I uninstalled the Metro version of Evernote for precisely that reason.

Nope, just tried it. [Ctrl]+[Esc] is the same as [Win], and both just show the Start Menu, which is allows launching any program there - Metro and Desktop alike.

Ah, I was wondering the same thing. Interesting solution. The only problem is if you have two programs with the same name, like both the Metro and desktop versions of Evernote installed. Which gets launched with the above?? There should be another way since Visual Studio can launch the application you are developing.

I saw your edit about it being aliased to classes root. But you are missing the point that somewhere else there is overridden associations that are displayed in the Default Programs list from Control Panel.

I believe that is what HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT maps too. Those store what the assoc command returns. But the override information returned by Default Programs in the Control Panel is different.
