it takes me to LXDE login screen
Technically that's the lightdm login screen, LDM, where "DM" is short for display manager. You are not wrong in the sense that it is sort of in use by LXDE and I think maintained by the same people as part of there project, but wrong in the sense that it does not by necessity log you into LXDE. That depends on how it is configured.
Also I wanted to make sure you understand "the raspbian deskop" is LXDE. The login screen is a display manager optionally used to, well, log in.
How can I make it go back to the raspbian desktop on default.
raspi-config to re-enable "GUI autologin".
If that does not work perhaps because:
It began happening when I attempted to modify the autostart file.
Then you should try restoring the autostart file to what it was before. Presuming you did not save a copy, you will need to look into an original image to get one.
