    Is it possible to run Metro apps from desktop?

    Can I run my metro apps directly from my desktop? What are the steps to do it I have heard that it can be done but donít know whether it is true or not. Can someone help me out in this matter?

    Launch Metro apps from Desktop

    To launch metro apps from the desktop, you need to create a shortcut folder containing all the metro apps. This can be done as followed:
    1. First of all, right click on an empty area on the desktop. Here select the New menu and then Shortcut option.

    2. Here paste the below given code in the Location box and click Next.
    %windir%explorer.exe shell:::{4234d49b-0245-4df3-b780-3893943456e1}
    3. Now type Metro apps in the box provided and click Finish.
    Now a folder will appear on your desktop with the name Metro apps. You can open this folder to launch metro app.

    Just click on any of the metro app to launch it.
