Taskbar is what I use, but the OP specifically mentioned putting apps out of view. Unless you auto-hide the taskbar, things pinned to the taskbar are still visible. The Metro start screen remains the comparable method to adding something to the Start menu.

And calling people idiots because their UI choices aren't yours? What are you, 12?

So either place them on the desktop (ugly and annoying, I know) or pin them to the taskbar (quick and efficient). There are plenty of options for ways to access your frequently-used programs. I mentioned the metro start page as the closest analogy to the start menu.

I spend 95% of my Win8 time on the desktop, which does have the taskbar. As in Windows 7, my most frequently used apps are pinned to the taskbar for quick access via shortcuts rather than mouse or start menu. Works like a charm. I didn't mention the taskbar in my original comment because OP said he wanted to place these links somewhere that could be hidden. You can hide the taskbar, but the closest comparison to the start menu is the metro start screen, so I mentioned that rather than the taskbar.
