    How to View Recently Used PC Settings in Windows 8.1


    information   Information
    This tutorial will show you how to quickly change and "view recently used settings" that were set in your account's PC settings in Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1.

    This can be handy to see what settings you had changed in PC settings recently if you should forgot later without having to go through all of PC settings.




    Here's How:

    1. Open PC settings.

    2. From the default Personalize on the right side, click/tap on the View recently used settings link at the bottom. (see screenshot below)

    3. Under Recent on the right side, you will now see all of your recently changed settings made in PC settings that you could also make changes to as well. (see screenshot below step 4)

    4. If you like, you can click/tap on the View personalization settings link at the bottom on the right side of Recent to return to Personalize (step 2). (see screenshot below)

    That's it,

    It certainly comes in handy if you should forget what you had previously set in PC settings.
