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 (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Microsoft Store

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:

  • Windows:
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com
    • Sign in to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET

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?

  1. Intel wifi Lan 4965 driver Support : Possible Solution

    The wireless card worked well till windows 7. Now this is a mess. Intel says they cannot Give update. The Solution to no connectivity I have found is in Adapter >Properties> Configuration> wireless mode. Changing it from b/g/a to b/g and vice versa each time it does not connect ; connects the device. I have to do it whenever there is some heavy thing between Computer and Hub. Microsoft can set a "Do while loop in its generic drivers" Also
    2. please set some heat sensing app by default in your Windows before it is too late.

    • Inking Custom Word List

      For some languages - Chinese for example - ink recognition results tend to have lots of errors. It would be extremely helpful if we could create a custom dictionary/word list/constraint as we can already with Speech recognition, as it was possible in the old Microsoft.Ink API:
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms829122.aspx

      Really should be a must-have; I am working on an app that has expected writing entries and it is a pain when none of the recognition results are close. And it is necessary for any app that needs to detect a custom word.

      Here is a related StackOverflow question:

      • Add ink recognition for math formulas

        Right now the APIs only allow recognition of text input. I know Microsoft already has the digital ink recognition technology for math formulas. It's even available in WPF via Math Input Control. I think it shouldn't be too hard to make it available in UWP as well. But either way please do make an API available. Thanks!

        • InkRecognizer doesn't find any recognizers for windows mobile 10. we need support for mobile

          I was digging into the new Ink API's and found out that the Inking works well for both PC and Mobile. But then i found out that when trying to recognize what I wrote, on PC it finds the necessary handwriting packages, (en-US etc) when developing we can set a default. For Mobile the API finds nothing and there is no way to download any handwriting packages in the settings. I tried both C# and vb.net

            • Option for Left handed people

              I would be a really nice gesture to have an option wich can put everything to the other side, so when left handed people scroll, they could also see the content.
