Since we hide the contextual appbar buttons on the start page, there's no way to immediately switch to desktop if you decide to switch right after launching (or after opening a new tab).

I think we should keep the menu button visible on about:start, with the "Relaunch in Desktop" command visible.  (The other menu items could be hidden or disabled on about:start.)
That's a good catch. 
I think for v1, keeping the menu button on start page would be the best solution. 

With some new tab display ideas for v2, I am thinking it's probably better to take the "relaunch in desktop" option out from menu and make it feel more like a system command by placing it on the tab strip.

I'd like to take this bug for iteration 20; p=1.

Not important here/now, but are going to want this to mean hide-on-about-colon-pages eventually?
