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).

  1. Ink Sampling Rate of Tablet device

    I am developing an app (written by C#) to collect ink and automatically get the information about the tablet device.
    Could someone tell me how I can get the ink sampling rate of a tablet device?
    Thank you all.

  2. Add custom InkAnalysisDrawingKinds and limit the InkAnalysisDrawingKinds the analyzer expects

    The ability to have custom InkAnalysisDrawingKinds for which you supply your own model, and the ability to restrict which kinds of InkAnalysisDrawingKinds an InkAnalyzer can recognize. The custom InkAnalysisDrawingKinds would be to allow me to recognize shapes aside from the default ones, and being able to restrict the list of drawings kinds would help me limit the types of drawings I am expecting.

  4. Inking Custom Word List

    For some languages - Chinese for example - ink recognition results tend to have lots of errors. It would be extremely helpful if we could create a custom dictionary/word list/constraint as we can already with Speech recognition, as it was possible in the old Microsoft.Ink API:
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms829122.aspx

    Really should be a must-have; I am working on an app that has expected writing entries and it is a pain when none of the recognition results are close. And it is necessary for any app that needs to detect a custom word.

    Here is a related StackOverflow question:

  5. Intel wifi Lan 4965 driver Support : Possible Solution

    The wireless card worked well till windows 7. Now this is a mess. Intel says they cannot Give update. The Solution to no connectivity I have found is in Adapter >Properties> Configuration> wireless mode. Changing it from b/g/a to b/g and vice versa each time it does not connect ; connects the device. I have to do it whenever there is some heavy thing between Computer and Hub. Microsoft can set a "Do while loop in its generic drivers" Also

  6. Add ink recognition for math formulas

    Right now the APIs only allow recognition of text input. I know Microsoft already has the digital ink recognition technology for math formulas. It's even available in WPF via Math Input Control. I think it shouldn't be too hard to make it available in UWP as well. But either way please do make an API available. Thanks!

  7. InkRecognizer doesn't find any recognizers for windows mobile 10. we need support for mobile

    I was digging into the new Ink API's and found out that the Inking works well for both PC and Mobile. But then i found out that when trying to recognize what I wrote, on PC it finds the necessary handwriting packages, (en-US etc) when developing we can set a default. For Mobile the API finds nothing and there is no way to download any handwriting packages in the settings. I tried both C# and vb.net

  9. Option for Left handed people

    I would be a really nice gesture to have an option wich can put everything to the other side, so when left handed people scroll, they could also see the content.
