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?

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.

  1. Improve the texts autocorrection function and add in more settings.

    this feature is very annoying as it keeps changing my words for me and i don't want that.
    after every 3 words or so my phone will put the first letter into a capitol and words such as go and others it just puts it completely into capitols, this is soo annoying and getting on my nerves, pls fix/allow for more settings for this asap

    • Windows should allow additional user accounts added to track & review the application review process similar to what Apple and Android

      Windows should allow additional user accounts added to track & review the application review process similar to what Apple and Android apple stores allow.

      The team across Development, Support and Business are able to track the progress of app review. This helps in understanding the timeline for publishing the app.

          • String.Normalize() Method

            The method would be useful for developers who must deal with diacritics in multilanguage apps.

              • By helping the testers better understand the criteria.

                Some testers do not understand the criteria for certification. I have a tester who failed my game multiple times, and a supervisor who backed him up, but both are dead wrong as seen from reading their own failure report. The criteria that the game needs to meet is listed right on the fail report:

                1) Play a music file.
                2) Launch the application.
                3) Verify that while the application loads, it does not pause, resume or stop the actively playing music.

                Then here is the reason they list for failing it:

                "Select YES when asked to play music, observe that…

                • NavigationService.Navigate() let us pass a parameter of type object along with the URI

                  If NavigationService.Navigate() would let us pass a parameter of type object along with the URI, it will help us to keep less states objects in the App class which will become a mess as project grows.

                  I know we can pass string in the URI but come on we are creating native apps not web apps that we should be limited to this way of coding.

                  Thanks!

                  • Make kids corner as a another account

                    Please make kids corner as a another account. This will make wp users very happy . Moreover kidscorner are not used by most of the bachelors. Atleast remove password for kidscorner or make another password for kidscorner.

                      • MVVM Better Command Binding Support

                        Better support for Commands for all controls, allowing to bind a Command in the ViewModel to any event from a supported control in XAML, without having to use third party tools such as MVVM Light. (no offense MVVM Light ;) )

                          • MediaLibraryExtension SaveSong() forces file extension to .mp3 even for .wma files

                            .wma files copied/moved to Music library using MediaLibraryExtensions.SaveSong() API from a windows phone app are stored in Music library with .mp3 extension, though the audio file itself will play properly from Music library

                            When you share it via email - you can notice that file attached has a .mp3 extension

                            Or connect phone to PC with usb cable and browse through windows explorer to Music folder - you will find the file with .mp3 extension. Manually renaming the file extension to .wma on PC will allow us to play the file properly in Windows Media Player

                            I discussed this issue…

                              Fix Altitude Bug in GeoCoordinateWatcher and Geolocator when using in WP8. On my lumia 520 (WP8) i get jumping values of altitude, even outdor with a strong and good GPS-signal. The altitude jumps from 27m to 200m up and down, 200m is the right value. The values from GPS-accuracy are top. This occurs In both classes on WP8. I always use the DisiredAccuray = high! I have read, that another user have the same problem with WP8-Phone, like HTC. All GPS-App in the store have the same problem with the jumping altitude.
                              But i found a solution. If you take…

                                I would like to use data-binding with Razor syntax similar to what ASP.Net MVC has. The binding syntax should support Intellisense. When binding class is optionally specified, the compiler should do static type-checking and produce build errors when binding is invalid.

                                        • Allow user selected app to change phone settings.

                                          Just like the user can select apps that are allowed to run in the background, it would be great if they could select apps that are allowed to change phone settings. For example I would love it if my GPS app could turn location on when the app starts and turn it back off when the app exits.
