    Start icon on the Desktop not there because Windows 8 Consumer Preview desktop has been redesigned since the Windows 8 Developer Preview. The start menu has been moved from the taskbar to the charms. To view charms you should move mouse to the bottom-right or top-right corner of the screen or you can also do by pressing Windows Logo key + C, or by swiping from the right edge on a touch device.

    Besides utilizing Start charm start there are also several method to bring back Start screen, here some tips to bring back start menu: Press the Windows Logo key on your keyboard or device, Hover the mouse cursor over the bottom of screen till left corner thumbnail of the Start screen appears. Now once you get thumbnail, just make click on thumbnail and you will return to Start screen. Press Ctrl+Esc on your keyboard to view start menu.
