After you turn on Personal Hotspot, other devices can connect in the following ways:

* USB: Connect your iPhone to your computer using the cable that came with it. In your computer?s Network preferences, choose iPhone and configure the network settings.

Note: When a device is connected, a blue band appears at the top of the iPhone screen. The Personal Hotspot icon appears in the status bar of iOS devices using Personal Hotspot.

Turns out steps are (with Windows 8.1):

1. Set up iPhone for Personal Hotspot
2. Move mouse to lower right corner of screen, opens Settings
3. Left-Click current connection (Wi-Fi in my case)
4. iPhone appears on list of Networks.
