I installed movie maker on windows 8,and can’t figure out how to open it. Go to control panel and programs and there it is. Have no way to open it on start or desktop.

Not sure I understand. Is it a Windows 8 familiarity thing?

I use the Windows Search to get the things I need. Just be on the Start Screen and type the program or file you want to use. Click on the results and you are there. If you right-click on the result, you will get choices to pin to Start or pin to Task Bar.

Generally, to put a tile on the Start Page, click on the little down-arrow near the bottom left of the tiles. This will open all your apps. Find the App you want to use and right-click it. You will get the choice to pin to Start. 

You can drag the tiles around to make a convenient and Custom Start Screen for you.
