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).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Custom Brokers

    Provide Custom System Brokers for WinRT platform.
    We need IO Brokers to enable copy and paste scenarios in Universal App in Phone and tablet.
    We need PVR broker to act as a middle man, this may not apply to Phone and Tablet.
    We need real Background Download Broker so we can have torrent or custom Download scenarios (some of them may not apply to specific form factor)

    I am sure you get the Idea ! :D

    • Drag and drop for digital whiteboard

      Drag and drop is good when you have a ListView or GridView, but when trying to drag other items, there is no simple way to implement this.

      I could see digital whiteboard apps being big. A tray of tools and controls that apply to that app. Like an inkwell, you select to tool to use in the drawing surface.

      • More artwork in SDK

        Distribute more application bar icons in SDK (at least each one used by built-in applications); provide forum/marketplace for other artwork, including control templates & styles.

        • TextBox height or width can beyond 2048 pixel limitation.

          I understand the max size limitation to control. And there are some approach to work around on most of the controls. However, for some control, e.g. TextBox, it's a big problem.

            • Allow edits to metadata for published apps.

              Allow developers to alter/edit an applications metadata, including description, images/graphics, pricing and keywords etc... once the app is published without resubmitting. This would make bug fixes to spelling and screeshots simple & would save Microsoft from having to test submissions for Metadata only.

                • Error Reporting Service

                  System supported application error reporting service, that would report back to developers application crashes and details.

                  • Provide Offline Marketplace Certification tools

                    Provide a pre-certification tool that runs all the tests the Marketplace certification tool runs.
                    So developpers can have more confidence it will pass the tests and fix the issues before submitting to the marketplace.
                    Time saver for Developers and Microsoft.

                    • Messaging/Sharing Hub Extras

                      Just like the picture extras ... it'd be great if apps like twitter and facebook could register to be on the list of applications that a user can "share" a piece of text with in addition to email and sms. This enables a number of cross app communication scenarios and lets the user choose how he wants to share that info

                        Allow applications to register messaging endpoints on device [e.g. register as a launcher/chooser] to ease on-device inter-application communication

                        • Media playback on emulator should match Phone

                          The phone currently plays a large selection of media formats (MP4, M4V, 3GP etc) that aren't supported in the emulator. This makes apps that use these formats extremely hard to debug.

                          Would be awesome if you could fix this :)

                              When I see the Palm pre's multitask switch, I know there is something MS can do better. Hopefully with fluently switch and creative gesture and UI.

                                    RCS messaging allows networks to send text messages over a data connection. Now that Windows 10 has LTE support, RCS Messaging API should be introduced so we can take advantage of this messaging protocol in our UWP apps...
