I wanted to replace Linux Mint with Windows 8 and create an install disk on Mint to do so and I found this program. Then I created a bootable Windows 8 install disk with an .iso image via WinUsb GUI. I kinda got confused when it placed GRUB on the USB disk and then I booted my computer from disk but the GRUB menu does not contain Windows or anything related to Windows. How do I reach Windows loader, any help please?

Why is grub used? You can just set the usb to NTFS with the hex code 7 and then mark it bootable. After that just format the drive in NTFS, mount it under /mnt/usb and then copy the contents of the ISO or DVD to /dev/sdx1.

After following the advise of @Homeless, if you use not Ubuntu, but, in example, Xubuntu, this link can be useful: http://askubuntu.com/a/344172
In this case the app is /usr/bin/software-center
