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?

    • Enable World Anchor sharing between HoloLens and ARCore

      Today it's not possible to create a virtual space where an ARCore device sees what the HoloLens user does. This would be a killer feature and I assume something might come from OpenXR in the future, but what is the HoloLens team's stance on this?

      • Add a command to call the Utilities page under System settings

        There are a lot of "ms-settings:***" commands to launch different settings pages from code on HoloLens, but there is no way to call the utilities page under the sysem settings. A command like "ms-settings:utilities" would be very useful.

        • VR Goggles Programmability

          I need the screen address(es) of virtual reality goggles in general, as well as their resolution width x height x depth and pitch.

          Probably through a direct draw surface(s).

          Reason being, I do my own 3d rendering without using DirectX for that video portion of my code, just Locking the screen DirectDraw surface for it's parameters.

          Without this information it will not be worthwhile for me to pursue the creation of a virtual reality system, and with this information I can get the job done in a few days.
