    Default Unable to Pin Desktop Short Cut to Start Screen

    Hi - I'm trying to set up my Win8 Start Screen like my old Win7 desktop. Everything states "left click on desktop icon, select pin to Start" to this point it is ok. I have been able to do this with Quicken, Firefox and other icons but........ I have a short cut on my desktop to shut down my PC and I want to put it on my Start Screen. Can any one help? Thank you.

    Right-click on the desktop shortcuts and select Send to Start. This will display the shortcut as a Tile on your Windows 8 start screen. Does this not work for you?
