Sometimes I want the same Tile in two groups in the Windows 8 start screen. Is it doable?

I guess I can make an extra shortcut pointing to the same program and pin it to the start screen. It seems a bit clumsy to me so I wonder if there is a better way.

Why do you want to do this? –  KronoS Nov 5 '12 at 23:00
    
@KronoS Good question. My answer isn't as good. Say I want to have Notepad++ both among text handlers (editors&word processors) and among dev tools. –  LosManos Nov 7 '12 at 17:09

It does not look as though there is a way to clone a Tile.

As you pointed out, you create a second shortcut to the same app for application shortcut Tiles.

For Live Tiles, you don't have any options at this point.
