Enable Windows phone Internet sharing

I know that WiFi is everywhere now. But it`s case in urban or suburban areas. Personally, I had few situations that I could not solve issue over phone by using mobile Internet. I had to use my laptop and connect to Internet over my Windows phone, due to lack of WiFi. That was case in rural areas. For these cases use Windows phone Internet sharing.

First go to Settings on you phone and scroll to Internet sharing option (Slide 1.).
