    Hello Jeff,

    Which app is this for? I may already have one available in a tutorial if it's a default app.

    Starting in Windows 8.1.1 when released on April 8th, you will be able to also pin modern apps to the taskbar.

    If you like, you could use one of the options in the tutorial below to create the website shortcut that you can "Pin to Start".
