Improve CameraCaptureUI on Windows 10 desktop
The current design of the CameraCaptureUI on Windows 10 desktop/tablet renders it useless.
In Windows 8.1 :
- The CameraCaptureUI was shown in full screen
- You could take a picture by clicking anywhere on the screen
In Windows 10 :
- The CameraCaptureUI is shown in a very small window
- You have to click on a small button to take a photo
How to you intend your Surface Pro users to keep the Surface steady with one hand, while taking a look at the small preview and clicking on a small button with the other hand?
Can you at least give an option to make the CameraCaptureUI fullscreen? So it's possible to hold the Surface with 2 hands while being able to click on the button (like the Camera app...).
The bug was reported already 2015, Oct. 28. When do you plan to finally fix it?
A response from anyone who is responsible for that long delay would be appropriate, please.
After so many years of ignorance shown by the Microsoft camera development team it would be fine to finally start working on this serious issue before the last user gave up using a windows 10 device for capturing photos
Is there any update or feedback from an Microsoft developer about this issue?
It would be very important because our customer switches to Win 10 tablets and finds this bug unacceptable.
Please fix it, so that it is possible to start the CameraCaptureUI in fullscreen.

Please fix it, its horrible experience to use Windows with that
After over one more month of communication with support personel and the Windows camera developer team there is still no progress in this case. That's really sad for all the users out in the field. More and more of our customers leave the Windows latform especially due to this bug. I'm still hoping that there will be finally one responsible person at Microsoft that initates this bugfix after that long time of more than 1 1/2 years!

If you would like customizable CameraCaptureUI including CroppingControl in UWP.CommunityToolkit, vote here: https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-universal-windows-platform/suggestions/18008278-customizable-cameracaptureui-including-imagecroppi
I've already initiated a Windows 10 support case, and in addition a professional business support case of priority Level A to finally fix this showstopper now. There's definitely not any one more day to wait acceptable for this issue to be fixed after that Long time!
I also agree with these comments, our customers are making complaints about this behaviour, and we need a quick solution for our application.

With the current way of using the CameraCaptureUI in an UWP app the whole UX gets disrupted. Please enable developers to let the CameraCaptureUI start fullscreen.
Jason Neely commented
CameraCaptureUI needs to be full screen please
Liu WenWei commented
Yes,I met this problem! Please fix this problem !
Dan Mohr commented
Agreed! This makes working w/ the camera very clunky. We shouldn't need to write our own camera interface just to get a usable camera UI.
Please fix this Microsoft.
Mark Reinhard commented
This is a major problem on the surface. Please fix this.
Jordan Derrson commented
Please consider reverting this so it works how every other platform works, its terrible as is
Brian Hardy commented
Please fix asap. The development of my tablet application has come to halt due to this bug.
Ben Holub commented
This makes developing applications with photo-taking capabilities incredibly cumbersome. We shouldn't be required to roll our own camera app just to make the interface even somewhat palatable.

Oh the humanity!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please fix so that life can continue as it was!
