    Hello Burl,

    You could use the the tutorial below to create or download a shutdown shortcut on your desktop.

    Shut Down Computer Shortcut - Create - Windows 7 Forums


    Afterwards, you could use the tutorial below to pin the Shutdown shortcut to the metro "Apps" screen, then pin it to the metro "Start" screen from the "Apps" screen.

    Did you still wanted to add the shutdown shortcut to the metro "Start screen"?
