Use this link as it has a download shortcut for the script file.

I installed Windows 8.1 Why haven't the Shutdown, Log Off and Restart Tiles been added to the Windows 8.1 Start Screen? Also add the option to Shutdown, Log Off or Restart to the Windows 8.1 Desktop. While your at it also add an All Programs or All Apps Icon to the Windows 8.1 Desktop.

Several problems with this video. 1) You don't state where we can download the script file CreateWindowsTile.psml from. 2) You don't state to create and place the script file into a folder named c:\script 3) You don't state how to pin Windows PowerShell to the Task Bar. 4) You don't state to right click on the Windows PowerShell icon to select Run As Administrator. 5) None of the Download sample code links work. 6) I tried to Post a comment and that does not seem to work either.
