Organise your Windows 8.1 Apps screen

Change the order of apps listed on the All Apps screen

The Apps view lists all the apps that are installed on your Windows 8 computer. By default, apps are listed by name alphabetically, which is useful if you know the name of the app you’re looking for. However, Windows 8.1 lets you change the way your apps are sorted and displayed on this screen.

Step 1  Click on the by name option next to the word Apps at the top of the screen.

Step 2  Select a sort option from the drop-down menu:

  • by name
  • by date installed
  • by most used
  • by category

Shown most used apps

Step 3  Your apps will be reordered according to the option you select. If you select by name or category, your Windows apps will be displayed first, followed by your Desktop programs.
