if you are on the start screen just start typing the name of the program you installed.

Or again if on the start screen right click anywhere and at the bottom right hand corner you'll see an all apps icon click that and you should then be able to find the program that you installed, you could then right click the icon for the program and select pin to start screen or pin to taskbar, form the task bar you can then drag it to your desktop.

You cannot drag anything pinned to taskbar to the desktop in win 8. As aquatarkus , right click in the start page, in a blank area, and select the 'all apps' icon at the bottom. See if you can find the program tile. If so right click and at the bottom select 'run as administrator' if you get the choice.
