Locking down Windows 8.1 start

Hello Experts,
We have an all in one windows 8.1 touchscreen desktop for a client. They want the ability to lock down the desktop (gems) and add pdfs and word documents as tiles.
Is there any recommended manual or software to do this.
We looked into the original windows 8 and you could simply tag a pdf to that screen but no longer.
Thanks in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

What we are after is the ability to pin PDF documents to the start. Locking down start so that things cannot be deleted or moved. The ability to web browse is important.
If possible solution to be managed by a novice admin user.

Did you look at the links I provided? The first link was for the ability to pin any file to the Start Menu, including PDFs.

The 2nd link was for "locking down start so that things cannot be deleted or moved."
