    Hello Emperor,

    Sure, you can. Anything that you "Pin to Start" from another location will not be added to the Apps screen. It only pins to the Start screen.

    Start Screen - Pin or Unpin App, Folder, or Drive in Windows 8

    If you like, you can add and remove items from the Apps screen though. Be sure to read the warning in the tutorial below though.

    Hope this helps,
