Default remove index letters from the app list in 8.1

Any chance to remove it, I have only stock apps installed, around 20 apps and indicator don't want to disappear

No, MS made it so that's always on. I think it's because people got confused when the jump lists started suddenly appearing after they installed some apps.

Two relevant points:
1) Why have a smartphone if you're not installing any apps or even adding things like multiple email accounts?
2) You realize you can jump to the bottom of the list with two taps, right? It's a *jump* list, not just an index.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
