Okay – maybe I’m old school, but I still find batch files useful, so it’s annoying (one of many annoyances) that in Windows 8 you can’t pin them to the new start menu.
Well, fortunately, Flavien Charlon has the answer. Put a shortcut to your batch file in %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
You should then be able to add it from ‘All Apps’ on the start menu.
That’s one annoyance dealt with. Sadly, Windows 8 seems to have plenty more.
