    Thank's karlsnooks for the list. I certainly am interested in tip #20, Launch Metro apps from the desktop but the advice just tells you to create an empty folder named Applications and does not point to the target location of the Metro App location.

    Fortunately the location is listed Here and I have written a short tutorial here also linking your post.
