    Well, yeah ... you could put a shortcut for all your programs in the Metro but if they're desktop applications you will be taken to the desktop to run them.

    Most applications are still desktop right now, you're not going to find all Metro programs for quite some time.

    This will explain how to see all Apps in the Start Screen:
    How to Open the "Apps" Screen in Windows 8

    You can right click on the Start Screen (not on a app link) and you will see a 'All Apps' button in the lower right corner.
