    Windows 8.1 Pro


    As everyone said, nope. And yes, it is a nuisance. So far from the leaks of Windows Phone 8.1, this hasn't been fixed. I adore how in Windows 8.1, PC Settings has everything in a main category and then subcategories. It should be PC Settings on Windows, Phone Settings on Windows Phone with both the two with a well setup settings menu.

    But to workaround this, there are several apps out there to add some quick access baby tiles to the Start Screen, like wifi and Bluetooth or accent colors. In 8.1, there will be a screen, I believe it will be Action Center, that allows you to add four quick access settings for the radios.

    Here I have to say that the facilities in Android are better. But the reverse side of the coin is that Android is also more complex. Maybe that's why I like my 521 - because it is so simple.

    Sorry, whs. My Chicago attitude couldn't leave this alone. I put them in alphabetical order for you. Would it really help?

    Accounts
    Ease of Access
    Network
    OneDrive
    PC and Devices
    Privacy
    Search and Apps
    Time and Language
    Update and Recovery


    We still have to know all the subcategories yet also, yes?

    Although Control Panel is alphabetized, one still needs to know what is where in all the categories.

    I really do think because the list is rather short compared to the CP that they prioritized them instead.

    Maybe you are right. I just navigat easier in All Apps than in the Settings. Maybe I am an alphabetical guy.
