I am a new Windows 8 user (new laptop I purchased came with it installed). I have installed START IS BACK which is very useful.
My problem involves the APPS that came with the OS. When I scroll to the right corner to activate the gadgets along the right side of the screen I select SEARCH and I get a screen full of the Applications (presumably installed on my laptop). One of the Applications shown is ACCU WEATHER FOR WINDOWS 8. How do I place that APP on my START SCREEN? When I right click on the APP I get a CHECK MARK and a window on the bottom of the screen shows 3 icons -- Unpin from Start/Uninstall/All Apps. Apparently the CHECK MARK inside the APP Logo indicates it is PINNED TO START however when I bring up the START SCREEN I cannot see the APP at all. I can move the screen from right to left and I see many APPS but that one is not there.
2nd Question: Assuming I can bring that APP to my START SCREEN, is there anyway to change the default WEATHER LOCATION that is displayed?
3rd Question: How do I PIN an APP to the TASKBAR? Where are the EXE FILES for these APPS stored on my laptop?
