    Hi folks,

    I can't seem to find a little feature that I loved in wp7.5. On my wp7 app list, there used to be letters that you could tap on that would take you to that section of your app list. i.e. In the app list, if I tapped on the F, it would take me to my apps that start with the letter F. I don't see this option on my HTC 8x in the app list. I see it in xbox music and other places, but not in the app list. I've seen it on phones at the store and I've seen screen shots in this forum. Can anyone tell me how to turn that on?

    I was a big fan of wp7 and already a big fan of wp8. Thus far, its a fancier wp8, but I'm finding a few things that I felt were missing in wp7. Can't wait to dig more into this site and unlock some other discoveries!

    It appears when you have more than (from memory) 45 apps.

    Even though games don't show in the list, I believe they count towards the 45 apps.

    Thanks for the responses. I installed another app and now have the little letters to jump around.

    fwiw, I have 45 apps + 5 games that are not in that list. I think the games don't count.
