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?

  1. Windows 10S Intune Enrollement Policy

    Using the Windows10SInstaller5932 when converting an Intune Managed Windows 10 Education device we are prompted during the initial configuration to set a PIN (Windows Hello) despite having this feature disabled via Intune policy.

    A clean Windows 10S installation from ISO does not appear to experience this issue.

      • A better beta program

        Microsoft should provide a better beta program for developers and user like the one in android in which you don't have to download a separate app , you update the stable one to the beta in the store. In the android one to apply to the beta you do it using google plus I assume that microsoft can offer something like that using socl.
        (sorry for my bad english)

        • MVVM Better Command Binding Support

          Better support for Commands for all controls, allowing to bind a Command in the ViewModel to any event from a supported control in XAML, without having to use third party tools such as MVVM Light. (no offense MVVM Light ;) )

          • 個体識別番号、またはSIMカードIDをAPIで取得&個体認証に使えるようにしてほしい

            アプリの使用を社内や閉じたネットワークでの使用で制限したい場合、現在表にアプリを表示しないことでしか回避できないが、これは非常に問題があり、セキュリティ低下の要因なので内部向けのマーケットプレイス対応だけではなく、端末そのものを制御できるようにしてほしい

                • AppBar Enhancements

                  It would be cool to allow the ApplicationBar to have more icons available. So it could stick with the same 4 row limit but could allow for wrapping so if there were 7 items, the applicationbar would expand to allow for the 2nd row of icons.

                  It would be also cool to allow for more than one application bar per page, so you could specify one at the top, left, bottom or right. The bottom could be quick links while the top or left side could be used for navigational purposes.

                  • Intergrate the silverlight toolkit with the Windows Phone SDK.

                    It's annoying having to download and install the toolkit separately.

                    • Internetexplorer - the FAVORITES should also open collapsed when adding new sites - if you have many favorites the overlook quickly get lost

                      Now - the IE favorites open fully with sub-departements. It should be possible to open so, that you at first only see hierarchy level one, and thab open further Details for adding new favorits. Greets, Till

                        • [BUG] File, folder picker and suspension problems

                          Soemthing gone wrong in one of the latest builds (currently I'm workong on 14322.1000) and after picking a file or folder the app crashes. Sometimes it returns for a second but remains inresponsive. Evertying seemed to work just right few builds before, now many users report me problems. I've also found that this may be a wider issue: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dc95d8fe-6a89-42b1-8d07-984cacb42138/uwp-file-and-folder-pickers-do-not-work-on-build-14295?forum=wpdevelop

                          Also there is a problem with testing suspension when debugging the app from VS - now it's not possible (either it's the problem of VS2015 Update 2 or something with build itself). It may be connected also with mentioned above picke's…

                            Right now, the new DevCenter offers the ability to sort by apps by Included, Markets, Base-price and Last modified. It would be more useful to be able to sort by Reviews, Acquisitions, Crashes and Ratings.

                                    This is a control that I use quite frequently in my LoB applications which I can see being something that is used across other applications.

                                    I have an implementation that I'm more than happy to provide.

                                      Please add api's for sharing to reading list. It is a useful feature. Would become even more useful if say i could share to reading list from chrome extension or mac desktop or iOs.

                                      • ListBox に表示するアイテムの高さがすべて均一でない場合のバグを修正して欲しい

                                        ListBox に表示するアイテムの高さが同じでない場合で、ListBox のアイテムが洗濯された場合(どのアイテムでも)、選択状態になっている間スクロールががたついてしまい、使用に耐えなくなります。
                                        修正をお願い致します。

                                        P.S.
                                        People Hub などではこのような現象は起きてないのは何故?

                                        • MediaCapture.capturePhotoToStorageFileAsync has memory leak

                                          I have a cordova app which works fine on Windows 8.1 platform, but on Windows Phone 8.1. the app crashes frequently after taking multiple pictures. After profiling the app I found that after calling MediaCapture.capturePhotoToStorageFileAsync method, memory is not released and allocates 10-20 MB with each call.

                                          I've also voted for this suggestion as that could fix most of camera related issues on Windows phone:
