Steps to reproduce
Using Windows 8.1 Update 1, be sure to check “Show Windows Store apps on the taskbar” option in the taskbar proprieties. Be sure to have Internet Explorer as the default internet browser.
Open the Start Screen and look for the Internet Explorer app. Right click on the tile and click on "Pin to taskbar", look how the desktop version of Internet Explorer is pinned instead the Modern version.
Open Modern Internet Explorer. Then, without closing it, go to the taskbar by any common way; look for the Modern Internet Explorer icon and right click on it. Look how the option “Pin this program to the taskbar” is missing.
Right clicking on the Internet Explorer tile on the Start Screen should show two options: "Pin Desktop IE to taskbar", which should pin the desktop version of Internet Explorer to the taskbar; and "Pin to taskbar", which should pin the Modern version of Internet Explorer to the taskbar.
Right clicking in the Modern Internet Explorer icon in the taskbar should have an option “Pin this program to the taskbar” like any other Modern app icon on the taskbar.
