  • I need to know this too. I need to unpublish one of my windows phone apps, but on the new unified dashboard there is no longer an option to access the phone dashboard like I could before (where I would simply go in and unpublish app packages).

  • One thing that I found that we can do until we can manipulate individual packages is:
    -in the dashboard, go to the app you want to get rid of.
    -click update.
    -click Pricing and availability.
    -click Show options.
    -under Distribution and visibility click Show options.
    -select "Hide this app and stop selling".
    -Save.
    -Submit.

    This is an option for anyone who has received an email about copyright infringement and needs to stop their app asap.

  • This problem seems to be resolved now. Go to the app you want to remove packages for, click update, click packages, click show details for whichever package you want to delete, and you will see that there is now an option to "remove" the package.
