I just read the very good article on pinning programs and folders to the Metro Start screen. What I want to do is pin bat or vbs or ps1 files to the Metro Start screen. That option is not available when I right click.

In addition, I want to be able to run an older application for a user from the Metro page and then return to the Metro page when it exits. Now it always returns to the desktop and the need to go back to start from there. Of course it is easy for them to just hit the Windows key but I am trying to make things as fluid as I can for them.
