    Question for the W8P Experts


    Is there a way to get the 'Settings' in alphabetic order. The way they are on my 521 is a pain because you have them in random order and it is a pain to find things.

    No, as they update, they drop to the bottom of the list
    So if you ever get a Settings update of some kind (like Audio)
    You will find it at the bottom.
    Maybe this will change in WP8.1.

    Thanks, that's what I figured. The list is so nicely organized in All Apps. Why could they not do it in Settings. It's just a mess.

    Agreed it is rather strange that it is so disorganized in settings.

    I think they did this in a prioritizing manner. It is categorized anyway.

    Yeah, that is one possibility. But who's priorities. Mine are probably different to theirs.

    Are your clothes in your dresser drawers and closet in alphabetical order? Hopefully you find and use them every day!

    They go by left and right. Left is the blue pants, right is the beige pants.

    Well,, there are all kinds of Sorting methods coming for the Apps section so we will see....

    Also, Nokia Blue will (should hopefully) be following soon after WP8.1.
