    Easiest way, for me anyway, is to work through your "program Files" or "Program Files (x86) folders and right click the . Exe file in each of your installed programs. Select "Pin to Start"

    Hi Abraham John,

    Welcome to Windows 8 Forums. To add the shortcut on the metro start, please type the program name in the search box (to open the box, press windows key + q), right click the program, select "pin to start" at the bottom.

    I am looking for a option where I can add shorcuts to a roaming user while login time. (Not manually doing Pin-To-Start option)

    Eg: In Win8 machine the following location is used to show the shortcuts in All Apps.
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Wind ows\Start Menu\Programs

    Similarly what is the location used for showing the apps in StartMenu?
