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 Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

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:

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?

    • 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

            • 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 :)

                • New multitask

                  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.

                  • Well established on-device inter-application communication

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

                        • [Bug?] MapControl MapIcon rendering changed on W10 Creators update

                          It appears that the MapIcon rendering by the MapControl has changed significantly with the Windows 10 Creators update. We have an app that at times, adds hundreds of MapIcon objects to the MapControl. Before Creators update this worked fine and the vast majority, if not all, were displayed. After creators update, we are only seeing a small portion of the MapIcon objects being rendered onto the map. And it's not because they are colliding with other MapIcons. We are seeing large portions of the map not displaying any of the MapIcons we've added.

                          We have always been aware of the…

                          • Give users the option to disable automatic application starts after restart

                            The new fall creators update seems to have introduced a 'feature' where if a user reboots the system, any applications that were open (well, some at least, it seems as though to make this issue even more confusing, not all applications follow this convention) will automatically launch on reboot.

                            Some users certainly will find this useful. Others may find this annoying.

                            Sadly, if you're someone who finds this annoying, there's no option to disable this behavior.

                            According to the singular post I was able to find on this new feature (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_desktop/programs-autostart-after-boot-in-windows-10/09dd8d3e-7b36-45d1-9181-6587dd5d53ab?page=2&auth=1) there is no way to disable this.
