I would like to know if there is a setting that every new installed application can place its tile on the start screen?
In Windows 8 this was the default behaviour but in 8.1 its not anymore.
I think this tile spamming after an application was installed is much better than looking for an application in the "All applications" overview. For me it is nearly impossible to find an application in this icon hell if I don't know the exact name.

Would be nice if someone can tell me if there is such a setting :)
