How Do I Add Apps From The All Apps Screen In Windows 8?

  • Add Apps from the All Apps Screen

    Not all of the available apps are immediately available on the Start Screen. To locate apps from the All Apps screen and pin them to the Start Screen, follow the steps below:

    1. Right click on any empty space in the Start Screen to open the All Apps menu. Click on All Apps.

    2. All Apps displays all current apps that are available to be pinned to the Start Screen. Locate the app that you would like to pin to the Start Screen and right click on it.
    3. Select Pin to Start from the bottom menu. In the example image below, Windows Media Player has been pinned to the Start Screen.

    4. Press the Windows key on the keyboard to get back to the Start Screen. The newly pinned app will be located to the far right of the Start Screen.
