Displaying Strore Application title in Windows Start menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm publishing my application in Windows Store. The issue is:  in Windows Start menu it looks like "MyCompany.MyApplication". Could I display it just  as "MyApplication" ? As I understand this is Micosoft "Convention" of name displaying ? But why the Windows Store applications from Microsoft and other vendors displaying without any prefixes ?

  • Hi Konstanin,

    Is your app published by Company developer Account or individual developer account? Is your app installed from the Microsoft Store? Does your app name have a prefix when displayed on the desktop? What do you set for the DisplayName for uap:VisualElements label in your manifest? 

    Best regards
