    'Microsoft History' app was my first ever app on any Store so I was excited about that and at that time you have passed it without any queries and problems, and now after making a global market in the app store you’re saying that to change the name, many of our users have given us excellent ratings and reviews and now you’re saying to change app name, is it fair?

    After this we’ll lose all our happy users and this might effect on our upcoming apps and reputation as a developer. If in the starting only Microsoft had not warned me to do these particular changes, at that time We hadn’t any problem to done it, but now after such a long time when we're so happy becoming a developer of Microsoft Windows Store but your this app name change mail from Microsoft really discouraged us very hard. 

    After successfully publishing this app we told all my colleagues that building apps on Windows is one of the best alternative to become an app owner that to be on Microsoft! But this kind of mail really broken our feelings. This type of dissatisfactory late change in the app name has not been expected from one of the most successful and prosperous corporation.   
    This is request to you that at least think that what negative impacts we’ll going to face after this change in the app name:- 
    • This ‘Microsoft History’ app is Universal app so surely affect other platform. 
    • Videos published to YouTube. 
    • Promotions in various social networks. 
    • This app is under the various competitions by this app name. 
    • Advertising of app through this app name. 
    • Azure notifications are through this app name. 
    • Various forms and feedback is through this app name. 
    • Various websites and search engine showing our app through this app name and lots more… 
    • At last what we’ll say to our users? 

    There are no personal contents in the app; we’re just only promoting  Microsoft through 'Microsoft History'. 

    Finally, this is humble request to you all that please VOTE and suggest any other solution for this problem. We’ll very thankful for it. https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-dev-platform/suggestions/8132973--microsoft-history-app-name-should-not-be-changed
