    The MORE PC SETTINGS in the new Win8 CP is the same as the old Control Panel Icon in Win8 DP. Is that right? Is that what you are trying to add an icon to the Metro apps? I had absolutely no luck in finding out where that utility resides on my computer when I accidentally erased it. Without a shortcut or knowing where it is, I am not smart enough to help.
