Key among those are the new settings sync features in Windows Phone 8.1, which let you sync key settings between your handset and your Windows 8.1-based PCs and tablets.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-sync-settings-your-pcs-and-tablets" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-sync-settings-your-pcs-and-tablets#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Fri, 18 Apr 2014 18:17:00 +0000 38221 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Master Social Networking Integration http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-social-networking-integration <div class="field-deck"> A major change for Windows Phone </div> <div class="node-body article-body">A beta version of Twitter for Windows Phone 8.1 leaked this week, providing an answer to some questions I was just going to pose about social networking integration in Windows Phone. With this release, we can see a version of Twitter that works like the Facebook app for Windows Phone 8.1, one that integrates deeply with the system in a now-consistent way. And that's a good thing.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-social-networking-integration" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-social-networking-integration#comments Facebook Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Twitter Thu, 17 Apr 2014 23:59:00 +0000 38201 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Master the New Custom Volume Settings http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-new-custom-volume-settings <div class="field-deck"> Finally, some separation </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Among the many seemingly small but very useful changes in Windows Phone 8.1 is a rethinking of the ways in which you can interact with the various sounds that come out of your handset. Now, instead of a global volume control, Windows Phone 8.1 supports separate, custom volume settings for the ringer and notifications and for apps and media.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-new-custom-volume-settings" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-master-new-custom-volume-settings#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:58:00 +0000 38181 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Pin the Sense Apps to Start http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-pin-sense-apps-start <div class="field-deck"> It's all starting to make sense </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Windows Phone 8.1 includes a new and improved collection of "Sense" apps, utilities that take the guesswork out of using your smart phone. These include Battery Saver, Data Sense, Storage Sense and Wi-Fi Sense. And the first four of those can now be pinned to your Start screen for quick access and live updates.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-pin-sense-apps-start" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-pin-sense-apps-start#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Tue, 15 Apr 2014 14:09:00 +0000 38111 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Pin Web Pages to Start http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-pin-web-pages-start <div class="field-deck"> Now with Live Sites functionality </div> <div class="node-body article-body">With the move to Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft has dramatically improved the capabilities of its web browser in the Windows Phone 8.1 upgrade.

These two updates are big enough on their own. But taken together, they provide some clues for a future integrated platform that we might call "One Windows."</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/one-windows-hero.jpg?1397567502" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/first-steps-toward-one-windows" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows 8 Windows Phone Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:09:00 +0000 38081 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Use Reading View in IE 11 http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-use-reading-view-ie-11 <div class="field-deck"> A better way to read the mobile web </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Windows Phone 8.1's new web browser has a number of interesting features, including some that will be familiar to those who use Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 8.1.

But with Windows Phone moving towards a more integrated platform with Windows, the way you take a screenshot has now changed in Windows Phone 8.1. Why? To make it more consistent with Windows 8.1, of course.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-take-screenshot" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-take-screenshot#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:18:00 +0000 38041 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Use a Start Background http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-use-start-background <div class="field-deck"> The kids are going to love this one </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Depending on your design sense and Start screen tile layout, one new Windows Phone 8.1 feature may really grab you: The ability to use a photo or other image as a Start screen background. Oddly, this feature doesn't work as it does in Windows: With Windows Phone, the background comes through on the tiles, not on the space between. And the effect can be quite interesting.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-use-start-background" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-use-start-background#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:44:00 +0000 38031 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Phone 8.1 Tip: Show More Tiles http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-show-more-tiles <div class="field-deck"> You're getting an upgrade! And you're getting an upgrade! </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you're upgrading to Windows Phone 8.1 on your current handset, there's one new feature you'll want to seriously consider: The ability to show more tiles on the Start screen. Previously available only on those devices with a 1080p "Full HD" screen, this denser, more usable Start screen layout is now available on all handsets that can run Windows Phone 8.1, from the affordable Lumia 520 to the flagship Lumia 1020.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-show-more-tiles" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-phone/windows-phone-81-tip-show-more-tiles#comments Windows Phone 8.1 Windows Phone Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:25:00 +0000 38021 at http://winsupersite.com
