    You guys helped me out tremendously.

    Is there a way to add other apps like Outlook, Word basically the entire office suite?
    I tried using the
    Pin-App "outlook" -pin

    But it does not add it

    You can download the PinItemToStartMenu.pm1 module from here Script to pin items to Start menu in Windows 8 (PowerShell)

    Import it and then add what you want with Set-OSCPin as described in the help. If you install this module above you could add them like this (but you'd have to change the path if you don't use Office 2016)
    Set-OSCPin -Path= `
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\OUTLOOK.EXE", `
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\WINWORD.EXE", `
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE"
    I tested it (as below) and it works for Outlook 2016 on Windows 10 AE - this is just code stripped from the link above to just add Outlook...
    $itemPath ="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\OUTLOOK.EXE"
    $Shell = New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application
    $Desktop = $Shell.NameSpace(0X0)
    $WshShell = New-Object -comObject WScript.Shell
    $itemName = Split-Path -Path $itemPath -Leaf
    $ItemLnk = $Desktop.ParseName($itemPath)
    $ItemVerbs = $ItemLnk.Verbs()
    Foreach($ItemVerb in $ItemVerbs) {
        If($ItemVerb.Name.Replace("&","") -match "Pin to Start") {
