How do I add a shortcut to a website to the windows 8 start menu?

I'm not sure if I like the whole idea of Start screen yet, but I would find it more useful with certain web based sites as a tiles in the group.

This question is similar to my other one at: How to pin a website to the Windows 8 Start screen without Internet Explorer as default browser? but this is meant to cover only those using IE as their default!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Geez enough with the "possible dupe" everything is a dupe since they are all questions :) – Paul Gregoire Nov 5 '12 at 19:52
Well when it's a possible duplicate I mark them as such. It's the way things go around here. :) – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Nov 5 '12 at 19:54
True, but its a specific question that is a "noted" twist on another question; I still believe its relevant an helpful being that I actually had this issue after I installed Win8. – Paul Gregoire Nov 5 '12 at 20:04

  1. Right-click on your desktop and select "New" > "Shortcut", to create a new shortcut.
  2. Create a shortcut to Internet Explorer with the website that you want as an argument:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

    Name it as you may want, "" on my example.

  3. Right-click on the shortcut you had just created.

  4. Click on "Pin to Start".

Thats all, now you have a tile that opens Internet Explorer with a personalized page.
