Hi there

Running Metro apps on desktop / creating short cuts etc is hardly new as you can do it already in Windows 8.1

Metro apps - desktop / taskbar / create cascading menu

However I hope that these will now run in proper re-sizeable windows,

The method I've linked still runs the metro apps as they do normally in W8.1 - it saves you though having to switch environments to run these and you can create desktop icons and links too.
