  • LockWorkStation is only available for Desktop App. Please refer to LockWorkStation function

    You can add your Metro Style App into Lock Screen.

    But the user is ultimately in control of what appears on their lock screen.

    The user can manage which apps appear on their lock screen, the order they appear, and the single app that can display text updates. The user can do this by selecting PC settings from the Start screen and going to the Personalize page.

    Please refer to  Lock screen overview for more details.
