    I was wondering if anyone knew of any app that let me set a Live Tile to jump to the Internet Sharing menu. All the Shortcut apps that I know about don't have Internet Sharing as an option, and I find that setting being something I have to change all the time now that I have a Surface with me so often.

    I tried looking around, and all I've found that can do it is "Supreme Shortcuts" which as far as I can see, can only be installed by side-loading a xap, something that I can't do on my Lumia 900.

    And it is 2013 and I still cannot find a Internet Sharing shortcut. I'm using my phone (Lumia 920) to share 3 UK network. I tether daily and having to go through the menu is a pain in the neck all the times. Anyone got lucky?

    In Windows Phone 8, which I made a separate thread for here, there's actually a GUID that takes you directly to the Internet Sharing page. I programmed an NFC token for it with NFC Interactor. I'd like to remove even that step though, by pinning it on my homescreen.

    But yeah, there's absolutely nothing for WP7.
