    Place a shortcut in the following ‘Hidden’ folder:

    %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    Now open Start Menu > All apps and locate the shortcut you placed. Right-click on it and select Pin to Start.

    That should work. Personally I prefer to pin Excel itself to Start (or the taskbar). A right-click on Excel then brings up the jump list of recently opened documents, with the ability to pin any of them to this jump list.
