I have downloaded many windows 8 apps
My computer is responding slow so i wanted to make a clean install again..
I have copied the files from C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\ some programs
but after installing windows 8 again if i copied the files again to windowsapps
how can i bring it to start menu after pinning the program to start menu it says "this application can only run in the context of app container"
Is there any way to apply it in registry and run the app ?

You cannot simply copy the files from one location to another either with Windows Store applications or most standard applications. You will need to re-download them from the Windows Store. If you open the Windows Store in the new environment, right click and select Your Apps from the top of the screen you will be provided with a list of applications not currently installed in the environment that you have previously accessed. You can also use the drop down menu to view applications that were installed in other environments or all of your applications. This is outlined here at Windows Support.

You never asked 'without downloading again'

why don't you want to download them? dodgy copy of windows?

In store you have "My apps" and the option to see which app you downloaded on which system and if they are not present in your current one. So re-downloading them is 2 clicks away!

you obviously also didn't read the words that he didn't use and he doesn't want to download them again... without telling us why, Sagar (LOL) have you got a legitimate copy? can you tell us why you don't want to download them? they aren't that big, so what's the problem?

I saw it, i just assume he thinks he must go and search for each and perform manual download for them... which is time consuming... so i give him another way (automated one).
