    I don't have that either, that was in Win 8, in 8.1 there's right click menu available for each tile for that. In newest update there are even more options.

    On the bottom left hand side of start screen is a down arrow. Click on it and the all Apps screen comes up. Right click on the program you want to add to the start screen and click on add to start screen.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, dreaming.

    I think you have Windows 8 there, not 8.1. There’s only “Customize” option on the 8.1 Start Screen bar as shown below. If you want to see what edition you have go to Control Panel > System. Hope that helps.
