    List apps alphabetically


    I'm to the point where I'm starting to get comfortable with Windows 8. There is one thing I wish I could do and that is to have my apps listed alphabetically. When I bring them up now I have a have a hard time finding what I need. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks--Frank

    Yes, right click on the screen and you will see all the Apps listed alphabetically. As far as the main ones go why would you want to do that, just place them in order of relevance. You can also type the first letter on the screen to find what you want
