Re: Lumia 610 alphabetical order in app menu

This alphabetical list cannot be removed my friend. If you go over the limit of 40 apps installed, then it automaticlaly adds the alphabetical list and groups it by it. Even uninstalling some apps doesn't revert it back.

You can always leave feedback with Microsoft directly about this, by visiting the link here: http://windowsphone.uservoice.com

In fact, its quite useful when you have large no. of applications installed.. Much easier  / faster to search ..You may (should) really like it once you get used to it ..

Doesn't seem to be any option to do that ...

The Alphabet index appears when you have 40plus apps installed afaik. You can't remove it when it does unless you uninstall enough apps.

 

In all fairness it's quite handy to quickly go to whichever app you need, Or are you honestly saying you'd prefer to scroll down to say Plex instead of just tapping an index letter and then tap 'P' ??

Some say once activated it will remain.. Some say you need to un-install much more applications that take the count to much below 40 ( not sure if to somewhere around 30)  to remove it ...

But believe me.. its much usefull than annoying once you get used to it ..
