By default, a fresh install of Google Chrome will place an entry on the Start Screen that when clicked will open the Modern UI/Metro version of Chrome. This is frustrating, as I want to have it open in my desktop. Is there any way to fix this?

Ah, I tracked it down. Open up regedit and set all of these keys to empty:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ChromeHTML\shell\open\command\DelegateExecute

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Chrome\.exe\shell\open\command\DelegateExecute

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Chrome\.exe\shell\opennewwindow\command\DelegateExecute

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Chrome\.exe\shell\run\command\DelegateExecute

After you close regedit, when you go to open Chrome from the start screen it will open in your desktop.
