When in modern IE, rightclick the screen, click the star-icon and the "pin-icon" will appear.

Hi @McKnife.
It has Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.16384
Clicking the star icon brings up Add to favorites, don't see pin icon anywhere.
The star icon is there whether I right click or not.
IE comes up on the Windows Desktop. So is the pin-icon a Surface Charm? How would i see the surface pin-icon while in Windows?
Thoroughly confusled

The PIN Icon is right in the favorite area that appears, after you click the star. It's in the upper-right of that area. Same browser here.

Ah, you are not even using the metro Internet explorer but the "classic" IE?
Because you were talking about the start screen I thought you meant the modern IE ("metro-IE"). Thing is: what you pin to the start page will open the modern IE, not the classic IE.

With the classic, it can't be done, I think.

With the classic, you can only pin to the task bar using drag and drop (= pull a tab right on the task bar).
