Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Windows Platform Developer (WPDev) Feedback site. This feedback forum provides the WPDev community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team, providing feedback to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the development platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

If you’re new to this whole UserVoice thing, we’d like to note two important things about this site: (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the product team; and (b) Suggestions made using this forum will be moderated if they do not actually represent a feature request.

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Space calculation of disks at all times and appropriate message to be prompted while copying data to them.

    Here is a Scenario.

    I've a 4GB EMPTY "Pen/USB drive" connected to "Windows 10" PC and and started copying multiple files simultaneously. Let's say there are 2 Different "COPY" processes are happening.

    [ PEN DRIVE has a usable/consumable space of 3.5 GB ONLY ]

    1st COPY process/Folder from local disk to "4GB Pen Drive" having SIZE of 3.0GB being copied into "USB drive". While this is still happening, Imagine i've started the 2nd copy process.....!

    2nd Copy process/Folder from local disk to "4GB Pen Drive" having SIZE of 1.0GB is done. Then it should not allow the COPY saying we've…

    • Allow to install Windows 10 Mobile on Surface RT and Surface 2

      Since Windows 10 Mobile is currently being installed on new 8 or 9 inches tablets based on ARM processors it should be allowed to install Windows 10 mobile even on the Surface RT and Surface 2, that would be like a special recognition for those who bought it, believing in Microsoft. Those two, even if they were the lower price ones, are very well made tablets and it's a shame to let them become obsolete only for marketing reasons. Thanks.

        • Create Albums

          Why doesn't WP create albums? I thought the ability to create albums in 'photos' would really help users be more organized in storing their photos. Please vote if you agree.

            Hi Enrique – I appreciate the consumer suggestions, but they’ll get more/better attention over on the consumer UserVoice site at http://windowsphone.uservoice.com/ – this UV site is for developer capability/API suggestions.

            Regarding your request, you can manually create albums by connecting your phone to your computer and then managing the photos contents similar to a USB drive and create folders/albums and move pictures about. Although your BEST bet is to go into your OneDrive account via web browser and create/manage albums there (instead of trying to do it on your phone).

            For developers, there is an API with WP 8.1 to add your app into the photos hub to allow for it to programmatically bring albums into the experience.

          • Delays by Verizon to release Windows Phone 8.1 in the USA painful for app developers.

            The delays by Verizon to release Windows Phone 8.1 in the USA are painful for app developers. It's hard for devs and consumers to understand who to blame: Microsoft, Verizon, or Nokia (or other mfgs). MS has to push more to make this happen. Why waste time developing 8.1 apps that can't be used by customers of one of the largest phone providers?

            • language sorting in keyboard (windows mobile/phone)

              Please add support to sort languages and change their order in popping up, in case there are more than 2 languages set/installed in windows mobile/phone keyboard.
              I have installed English, Farsi, Russian and Estonian in keyboard and I want them to be shown in this order: En,Fa,Est,Ru; but now they're in this order En, Est, Ru, Fa; and I cannot change the order.

              • report news

                Make available, at least on a quarterly basis, a report to the users of the changes that were made from suggestions and bug reports. It's a great incentive for those who report bugs or suggestion on user voice, know that they are being heard.

                            We need override base keyboard, with adding custom keys.
                            And adding new text function: add text from reading QR-code.
                            On the keyboard near the space button, add new button "input from camera". If you push this button, start camera app and starting search QR-code.

                            • Los Iconos de Windows 8 Y WINDOWS PHONE 8.C Son deprimentes.

                              Lo que les queria decir es que los ICONOS de Windows 8 y WINDOWS PHONE 8.1 y las siguientes versiones de Windows. son deprimentes, es decir en las personas que los ven causan depresión.
                              No se como el departamento de Mercadotecnia y psicologia de Microsoft no estudiaron la teoría de las personas y la atraccion de un producto por los colores. Los colores que les pusieron a sus últimos productos están horribles.
                              No se en donde dejaron los iconos muy bonitos y vistosos que dejaron atras con Windows 7. Ustedes aun tienen las patentes de esos iconos, ¿Porque no volver…

                              • speedup windows 10 mobile even more

                                Could you put in an update to reduce boot time by 2 seconds.
                                And make the start screen interactions smoother? Such as swiping from start, to the list of all apps
                                And could you reduce the time it takes for a windows app to open by 1 second e.g messaging, phone etc.

                                WP has all of the security from 8.1 and features and some nice features please let the last feature be the Android apps.
                                Please don't add more and more features!
                                Feel free to add the ability for extra apps as that's a requested feature and please keep adding…

                                    • Group email messages by date

                                      Would be nice and useful to have email messages grouped by date, same as contacts grouped by initial letter.
