Ok. I found a solution for the windows 10 start screen...open RUN box (windows key+R) then copy paste this command: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs Press enter ... and you'll see a lot of folders... just copy your shortcut there (not in folders but next to folders) DONE open your start screen,then all aps and find your shortcut and pin to your start.
