I installed Office 2013 on Windows 8 in Audit Mode. After I finished everything, office works ok, but there is no shortcut for the office programs on the start menu of Windows,I tried to run a Repair but it didn't restore them.

Is there any command that would do it?

It should be possible to search for the Office apps you want shortcuts to, either by typing it's name at the Start Screen, or choosing search from the Charms Menu (Win + C).

Ignore the fact that I am using Office 2010, it should be the same process for 2013.

Searching for Word

Right click on the app and a menu will come up at the bottom of the screen, select Pin to Start.

Right click menu

If you want to do them all at once you could search "2013" instead of the name of the specific app.
