I have a Chrome tile on my Win8 Start that opens Chrome on desktop and goes directly to Chrome default page.

I also want, as I have in XP and 7, a Start link that goes via Chrome to my Google Calendar. I actually already have this on my Win8 Desktop -- it's just a shortcut to Chrome with an argument that specifies my Google Calendar URL. Works great.

[I currently [still] have MSIE-10 as default browser. Want to leave it that way for now -- at least until I'm done beating on it. Otherwise a simple web short cut would work. ]

In XP thru 7 I can simply pin this shortcut to the Start menu and it works and it stays put.

I can do this in Win8 as well but, though the icon does show up on the Start screen, it disappears from the screen on first use of anything on the Start screen.

Weirdly; the shortcut does get copied to my Desktop folder and it does stay in that folder -- but it just won't show up on the Start screen.

Any ideas how to fix or work around whatever is going on here? (Also tried moving / copying it to the system's own start folder, but no luck.

Thanks.
