Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Universal Windows Platform Developer Feedback site. This site provides the Windows developer community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center (dashboard, reporting/analytics, submission process, etc.)
  • Microsoft Store

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

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

  • Windows consumer suggestions: Use the Windows Feedback Hub app built directly into Windows 10
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com: Sign in at the bottom of the page to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET: Use the Visual Studio UserVoice site

If you’re new to UserVoice, two things to keep in mind are (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and not the 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 (or if too many different ideas are included in one suggestion).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

(thinking…)

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.

    Side Loaded Apps - Full kernel driver access. Allow Windows IoT Enterprise embedded devices to run a WUP app and access its own PCIe Hardware. In theory it is allowed. In practice there is no way to petiton for help.

    • Allowing InputScope in AutoCompleteBox

      It's ridiculous that we cannot specify InputScope for AutoCompleteBox. Please add it ASAP

      • Bug in EnergySaverStatus

        It looks as if the return value of...
        Windows.System.Power.EnergySaverStatus
        ...is always 1, i.e. "Off". Regardless of a threshold set in the energy saver settings.

        Looks like a bug.

        I'm using a Lumia 620 device with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.11.

        Could someone please have a look into this

        Thanks!

            • DateFlyoutPicker flyout has not same size with ShowAt and ShowAtAsync

              ShowAt show the flyout with the size (width) defined in the style
              However ShowAtAsync show the flyout with the with of the element passed in parameter and ignore the style. I think its a bug.

              ShowAtAsync would be more convinient to use but we cannot as the flyout is not size according to its content, but to the width of the attached button.

              • MapControl.GetOffsetForLocation return -1,-1

                MapControl.GetOffsetForLocation return -1,-1 when it fail.
                I would prefer it return a boolean or an enum with the Fail reason.

                Probably when the location is outside the camera frustum...

                It would be nice if we could have a function to clip a path to the camera frustum. (to draw it as an overlay, with Win2D for example as it is faster to refresh than using MapPolyline...).

                The best of the best would be to have a DrawingContext on the MapControl :-) with DrawLine etc... I need to implement a such thing for my own project.

                • [BUG] Scrollviewer and InputPane Interaction

                  If we have a form in a scrollviewer and a textbox recieves focus then the page translates.Instead of that the page size should become smaller and the user shouldbe able to scroll all the fields even when the page is open.

                  This can be seen in settings page. Start typing something in the search tab and try to scroll to the bottom most element while the inputpane is open, you cant see the last element.

                  • better multi tasking and background proccessing how do not decrease the battery life obviously.

                    Some apps don't work in background well. Downloads may breaks when apps switched.
                    For example, it's better that browser can load a page while i'm switching on another application.
                    Thank you.

                    • Windows developer account registration doesn't support prepaid visa card

                      Well,many country doesn't have visa card availability.So the only way we can have international transactions is via prepaid visa card.So ms should support prepaid card for dev account registration.Or atleast ms should state in the registration form that you dont support prepaid card for developer account.

                            Seems like there is a problem with a popup, which seems to overlap the application bar. The strange is that when we open the appbar it seems to be partially covered. I've observed it on bot - desktop and mobile UWP app. More description and sample code you can find here: http://stackoverflow.com/q/33321971/2681948

                              • HTTP: Provide capability to add custom headers to multipart content - HttpMultipartContent class

                                The current implementation of the Http*Content classes exposed by the Windows.Web.Http namespace do not allow adding Custom headers to the Http "content".

                                If developers need to create a request with multiple instances of MIME content (e.g. an email and an attachment), they need a capability to add the Content-Transfer-Encoding and Content-ID headers to each of the mime contents. Currently this is not possible because when trying to add custom Headers to the content using the below code:

                                HttpMultipartContent mpContent = new HttpMultipartContent();
                                mpContent.Headers.Add("Content-Transfer-Encoding", "8bit");

                                we first check to see if the headers which are trying to be added are "well…

                                • Users with access rights role of release manager

                                  As a developer we should be able to create subusers who has no access to sales data, kind of release manager role we can assign to them. Currently there is no such provision and all of employees who are coding and publishing apps, easily know the revenue earned. More I earn, more chances they will leave and start publishing their own apps. Please take a note of this. Both Apple and Google allows us to create user accounts with release manager role, who has no access to sales/revenue reports.

                                  • Allow to use reserved name to another application in the same store account

                                    I've two apps with same name, one is in phone and the other one is in desktop. Now, I created a universal app. Tab version have a small number of users, I need to upload new universal package to the phone version app.

                                    But the problem is the App name automatically reserved to the Tab version, and the package name also. I'm not able to associate the application with the phone build in the store(because the app name is not reserved to this, there is no package name or package id for this in the store)

                                    How can I resolve…

                                    • unable to enable cortana in windows 10 mobile emulator

                                      Unable to enable Cortana in windows 10 mobile emulator. Because enabling Cortana requires us to login using MS account. And since you cannot login to MS account in Windows Mobile 10 emulator due to permission/trusted device issue it is impossible to enable and test/develop an application that uses Cortana.

                                      • Have a search box for Favorites

                                        I have a ton of sites saved in my IE Favorites....it would be great to have a search box for the favorites rather than scrolling around.

                                        • MessageDialog Ctrl+C handling

                                          When using classic Win32 MessageBox() API, the spawned dialog allows you to copy its content (using Ctrl+C).

                                          The equivalent WinRT API - MessageDialog - provides no apparent means to copy the message to clipboard - no response to right click, no response to Ctrl+C.

                                          Sample code:

                                          using namespace Windows::UI::Popups;
                                          MessageDialog^ dlg = ref new MessageDialog("somemessage");
                                          dlg->Title = "sometitle"
                                          dlg->ShowAsync();

                                          Thanks for your attention.
