How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

AppX uninstall doesn't cleanup application frame data

I hear a lot about “clean uninstall” but we noticed a few months ago appx leaves some stuff behind. Specifically, persisted appframe window sizing data remains behind, potentially leaving the user/dev in a potential bad or confusing window state.

See the data piling up in the following stores:
• HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ApplicationFrame\WindowSizing
• HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ApplicationFrame\Positions
• HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ApplicationFrame\TitleBar
