    Pin Icon missing windows 8.1


    After updating to windows 8.1 I noticed that the pin icon is missing. Could someone please post (if there is) another way to pin a web site to the metro screen other than using that Icon

    Hello Jeff,

    You could use the method below to pin websites to your Start screen.
    Another option, would be to create a website shortcut that you could "Pin to Start".
    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
