Today I was trying to pin some commonly used servers to my Windows 8 start screen, and I noticed the option wasn't available when I right clicked on the various saved .RDP files.
I did try right clicking the connections and choosing "Create Shortcut", but I still did not get the option when right clicking the shortcut, adding the shortcut manually to the following location didn't work either:
To get around the problem I navigated to the above folder, right clicked and chose "New > Shortcut"
In the box asking you to type the location of the item, enter the following, substituting for your server name/IP where I've entered 127.0.0.1
Now I have all my servers available on the start screen as intended.
