    A quick question I have is there a way to see the app that are running? Like the only thing I have found annoying is lets say I am in one app and then someone sends me a message on skype and I click on it to see the message. Is there a way without hitting home and then clicking the app again to just hit a button or swipe to see all running apps to quickly resume?

    Push and hold the back button. The home screen and any open tabs will zoom back. Scroll to the tab/screen you desire.

    Hit the X to close out any unwanted tabs/screens.

    Tabs in immersive Modern/Metro IE are much the same.

    You're welcome. Did you notice the "Windows Phone 8" tutorial section by Brink in the Forum's tutorials? Very helpful.

    Thanks for that tip, I didn't know about that one, I've just looked and see there were about half a dozen tabs showing on the screen.
    Thank you.

    You're welcome, Joan. Glad to be of help.

    Tabs are an important part of the UI and navigation. A real time saver. Don't know much about iStuff, but it sure has it over on Andavoid.

    No I didn't, thanks for letting me know. I didn't even think to check since there is no official area for the Windows Phone OS on here. Thanks.

KB2973544 is the one that supposedly forces windows 8 users to upgrade to 8.1. People who already have 8.1 probably didn't get this update, and I read that not all windows 8 users get this update, and it comes out in small batches at different times. I am not really looking for any help here as...
Hi folks: I'm into Day 3 of using Windows 8.1 with Update 1, and I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm not running into many limitations yet, and all my apps of choice have worked so far. I will still say that I prefer Vista from a visual perspective, and in its ability to customize the desktop, but...
Hi there. I decided to upgrade a few days ago to Windows 8 as I decided 25 wasn't much of a loss if I didn't like it. I wasn't too sure what to expect but I'm mostly presently surprised. The main big change that originally annoyed me when I first saw the early versions of Windows 8 was the...
It's been 2 days now since I completed my hellish install of Windows 8 (which, itself, took 2 days) and I'm now just getting round to playing with some of the features.

I'm directly copying this from a comment I left on an article that was discussing Windows 8; but as the title implies, this will probably be the last thread I start on here, because frankly, it seems that no matter what, Win8 haters are going to hate, regardless of whether they give the OS an...

This should probably be posted elsewhere on this forum, so apologies in advance. I've installed the 8250 CP version under VMWare Player and have been experimenting with it for a week or two. It supports most of my apps and the older ones I have to use VM XP to use anyway, since even Windows 7...
