Windows 8 comes with its new Metro Start Screen, which makes it easy to launch your Metro apps from that screen, but did you know you can access them from Windows Explorer too? Here’s how to do it.
To get started you need to create a shortcut, so right-click on the desktop, and choose New –> Shortcut.
When you are asked for the location of the item, use the following:
Give your shortcut a name, like All Apps and click finish.
If you open the shortcut you will see it has all your apps, including your Metro apps, conveniently in one place.
Now you can just double click on any app to launch it.
