I am using windows 8. When I install some application and search for it using the new Start menu it doesnt appear to show. This is very frustrating since I have to manually go to the location in order to run the program. Is there any way to add a program to the windows start menu?

I suggest you upgrade to Windows 8.1 this problem sort if solves itself – Ramhound Jan 5 '14 at 6:49
Is there any other program I can use instead. I dont want to upgrade to 8.1 just for this – Sab Jan 5 '14 at 7:42
Cool. Thats really interesting. Thanks a lot – Sab Jan 5 '14 at 10:44
@Sab there are more reasons you should upgrade. Microsoft doesn't plan on supporting windows 8.0 for very long – Ramhound Jan 5 '14 at 14:54
