On Options flyout, currently we are using "Yes" and "No" for switch controls.

We should change that to the standard "On" and "Off".
Summary: Change - Use "On" and "Off" for switch controls instead of "Yes" and "No" → Change - Use "On"/"Off" for switch control instead of "Yes"/"No"

Microsoft is inconsistent about this; for example People and Store use Yes/No, while Mail, Maps, and Music use On/Off.  Are there written guidelines?

Ah, found them: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465475.aspx

So it sounds like On/Off is preferred over a different generic string like Yes/No.
