    How to Open and Change Settings for Apps in Windows 10


    information   Information
    Universal Windows apps (formally called modern apps) can now be opened in resizable windows on your desktop like any other app now in Windows 10.

    This tutorial will show you how to open and change the settings of universal apps in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. When you have a Windows app (ex: Weather) open, click/tap on the menu Open and Change Settings for Apps in Windows 10-hamburger_icon.png “hamburger-style” button at the top left, and click/tap on the Settings option. (see screenshot below)

    2. You can now click/tap on the available settings to change for the app to what you like. The settings you have available will vary per app. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,

    How can I get to the settings menu in Tablet Mode? The hamburger menu doesn't appear, and the charms bar doesn't exist in windows 10.

    What app is this for?

    Look to see if you have a settings icon to click on.

    The facebook app, and many other apps designed for windows 8 do not have a settings icon. They relied on the settings icon in the charms bar. I need to know how to open that charm in windows 10 while in tablet mode.

    I haven't been able to test it yet, but see if swiping inward from the screen borders may open it.

    Swiping in from the top closes the app. Swiping in from the left opens the task switcher. Swiping in from the bottom appears to do nothing, and swiping from the right opens the action center.

    Your tutorial posted here Touch Gestures for Windows 10
    Says that swiping in from the top should make the title bar appear. I wasn't able to get it to do that, but will try again when I get home.

    If you move the pointer to the top while in tablet mode, it'll open the title bar. :)

    You're most welcome. "Touchy" being the key word and pun. LOL
