- the child of my sleepless night
This application beats the most annoying feature of Windows 8 - auto pinning the installed software to Start Screen. With this little tool you can temporary disable pinning feature, then you can install everything you want and it will not be pinned. After that you can unlock pinning feature again.
Also AutoPin Controller will allow you to reset the Start Screen with one click: it will remove all tiles/shortcuts and set them to first logon state.
A tricky tip: lock the pinning, install software you need, unlock the pinning and pin that YOU NEED, not everything.Download link
I started to hate Windows 8 for auto pinning after I got VS 2012 installed. I got full Start Screen of crap
