Default Android 4.0.4 settings confusing. Can't find some of the options

The Settings in Android 404 is confusing me. I am looking for the application option in settings but can't find it. There is Developers option but I can't find what I am looking for in there.

What I am looking for are

Manage applications
Running services
Development.

Thank you in advance

Unknown sources is a security setting. Is that what you can't find?

System Settings > Accessibility > Large test [X]

Check that box, shouldn't be a problem seeing all the obvious settings now.

Totally agree. So confusing. I can't even find the laziness option.

My problem wasn't seeing them. My problem was finding the options like "Application" which I was used to in the previous version of android.

"Apps" is right there in Settings. All sarcasms aside, it just takes a little bit of patience and exploring to find things. If you don't like changes, I guess iDevice would be a better fit as Apple has kept things the same for all generations of the iDevices.

I explored to my capacity. I don't mind change as long as I could figure things out. I have checked "Apps". In there, there are only apps I downloaded . Now I assume you did some exploring. Will you be kind enough to point me to the following applications in android 4.0.4 ?

Manage applications
Running services


Thank You

Manage Applications and Running Services are launcher specific shortcut menus to the Application in Settings. Do you see the different tabs at the top in Apps? Sliding that and you will see what you are looking for.
