    How to add contacts on Start Menu?


    I was wondering how I could add people from my Contacts app onto the Start Menu where things is easier to access, rather than me going into the app all of the time, when I can easily gointo the start menu and just navigate more quickly to the people that I talk to more often.

    If anyone knows how I can do this, please leave a response. Thanks!

    You can see the thing I am talking about on the Windows 8 Consumer Preview video that is being showed off.
