There are many reasons why you need a phone and top on the list is the ability to make calls and send mails. A windows phone has various features beside the common ones and for you to save on your time as you use them, it is vital to know where to press for you to use them effectively. The following are some of tips to help you enjoy this unique handset to the maximum without wasting a lot of time.
If you want to call a person whom you have already saved in your contacts, instead of scrolling on your handset looking for them, use the shortcut. All you will do is click the first letter of their name and the names on your phone which start with the letter will pop up. Choose the correct one and make your call.
Control music without unlocking your screen:
If you are in a bus or a place where you do not want to look at your phone to either reduce or increase the volume of your music, the best option will be to use a shortcut. When you use the up and down keys you will reduce or increase the volume without having to unlock the phone.
Retaining previous applications:
In the event that you were using a certain application and then left it, if you wish to get back to it, press and hold the “back” icon. That will bring up “fast application switching”. When you see these words, select the screen image which you are looking for.
If you have a certain image that you wish to use as a background, go to your “camera roll” or “saved pictures” and then click “add to favorites”. This you will only do if you are at “menu”.
Getting the full website:
For you to get the full website, click ‘…’ icon then scroll all the way to settings. Tap on settings and there will be several options for you to choose from. Select “website preferences” and choose “desktop version”. After that reload the existing page and the server will give you a full website.
