Where to find out Device Panel in Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8?

    Question

  • 1.Install VS 2012 Ultimate on Windows 8, then start VS 2012, but can not find Device Panel from VS2012 View Menu. Only 3 options for debug for windows store app:

        Simulator  
        Local Machine  
        Remote Machine  

    Device Panel mentioned in this link:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj215600.aspx.

     
    2.If debugging windows store app with Simulator, run the app, then try to stop the debug app with Alt+F4, the app running in simulator won't closed, if switching to VS 2021 with Alt+Tab to stop the debugger, VS 2012 will be frozen and crash finally.

    Not sure where wrong. how to fix it? where to find out Device Panel, is it same as Simulator?

  • The device pane only appears when editing a .xaml document, are you editing a .xaml document? The menu item is under design -> device window for me.
