I created my Start UI like I want and used this PowerShell cmdlet to create the .xml file for a user's default layout:
export-startlayout –path <path><file name>.xml -as xml
It created an
AppID for each shortcut to a URL in the xml file.
AppIDs are not consistent across machines (I tried it).
How can I add shortcuts to my Start UI in Windows 8.1 Pro with the layout xml file?
I put the xml file here. It works great but no shortcuts.
