Now is possible to sort the games in alphabetical order ? Good, I guess.
The options are:

-by Time Last Played
-by Total Play Time
-by Title (A-Z)
-by Publisher (A-Z)

This doesn't affect your 12 home screen games or you 'Profile > Play Activity' (always Time Last Played), only the 'All Software' screen.

EDIT: Worth noting, 'by Total Play Time' sort is per console, not per user.

I haven't had a Switch since last year (plan to get the Pro model when they announce it), but did they ever fix the home menu resolution to native 1080p when docked? Or is it still 720p? That always bugged me.

If that zoom in works for gameplay I'll be very excited, because I have trouble concentrating when I try portable.

They could have brought all the features of all the prior updates including this one with the day 1 patch. Seems nintendo spends 99.99% of its labor force and funds making mario and zelda, then 0.01% working on the console patches.

Well, it's paying off.

Not bad. The console still needs a messaging system! Imagine you’re charging me to play online but don’t have a messaging system..

Finally the switch wont automati ly turn on when removing it from the dock, such a strange feature to have mandatory before.

It's better to add features and imrpove on the system overtime, rather than front-load the system with too many features at launch.

I wish there was a way to make the all game view the default. On the 3DS, I liked that instead of the single row, I was able to shrink the icons and have just about everything installed on it available at a glance. Well, that and folders too of course. At the very least I do appreciate that the system remains very snappy and hasn't developed any sense of being "bogged down" from updates, though on the other hand, they admittedly take very small steps with each update as far as I am aware. Not sure if the two have anything to do with each other or not but I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case.

Yeah, as much as I want folders, I think it’s pretty obvious that Nintendo’s number one priority has been a quick and clean UI. It has been their achilles heel in the past on Wii/3DS/Wii U. I do love the speed of the Switch’s interface.

Are you sending new joy cons to everyone one who complained about it as well Nintendo? Can't stand the drifting anymore. I've changed the fucking stick twice already.
