They are all there. Hardly anything has changed from Windows 7. If you have not installed a third oarty Start menu on the legacy desktop then, in the windows 8 screen, right click a blank space and select "all Apps" (Bottom right). You can then right click the two items you have mentioned, and several others, and at the bottom of the screen select "Pin to Start". You will then find they are in the default screen.
