    WTF is this?

    Go to C:\Users\(you)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX

    these folders seem to contain the shortcuts for the Tips menu.
    I just tried adding things, but after rebooting nothing changed.

    That's interesting.

    Here's a tip for all those that want to boot directly to the desktop. Copy the Desktop link (don't move, make sure you copy) in group 1 to your startup folder. Boom. Boot to desktop.

    As a command:

    copy "C:\Users\(you)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group1\Desktop.lnk" "C:\Users\(you)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

    Use the win+X menu editor utility. Get it from

    Power User Tasks Menu (Win + X) - Edit in Windows 8
