Expression Blend 5: How to change app name?

    Question

  • Using EB 5 preview for W8 dev, the good news is that I have made a small yet functional app. the bad news is that I had built the app based on a copy of  an earlier app, so on deploy the name of the original app is on the desktop tile. I have no clue how to change that deploy-name in either VS or EB. any pointers would be awesone :) thanks!

    slowly getting my mind around .NET...

  • I believe the setting your looking for is in the package.appxmanifest. Opening it in VS Express will show the editor with the settings to change the name displayed on the tile.

  • Hi,

    To edit the manifest from within blend, please double click the appxmanifest fileand change the DisplayName tag to whatever you want.

    Hope this helps,
