Pin the shortcut to the taskbar
Just like Windows 7
One of the nice features of both Windows 7 and Windows 8 is that you can pin your new shortcut to the Start Menu and/or to the Taskbar. I am a big Taskbar user myself so that is where I want to put it. Right click the shortcut to get the context menu and click the Pin to Taskbar menu item.
