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.
Change the Wi-Fi password for iPhone. Go to Settings > Personal Hotspot > Wi-Fi Password, then enter a password of at least 8 characters.

Monitor your cellular data network usage. Go to Settings > Cellular. See Cellular settings on page 157.

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.
