Azure Management Portal won't run on the Windows 8.1 IE App on my PC.

Is there a way to create a shortcut tile on the start screen that will open the Portal in IE desktop mode ?

Ah but I only want one specific tile (Azure Portal) to open on the desktop.  I was wondering if there was a command line switch or something similar ?

You can simply create a shortcut on the normal desktop like this:
Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://***youraddressHere***
and after creation rightclick it and select "Pin to start" - that does solve it indeed for just a single website.
