  • No. Apps cannot control where the user can browse.

  • Thanks Rob. Per your response, my guess is that whether to show "Recent Places" is up to the OS. Is there a circumstance where the OS will show it when the user selects a file, or it is never available for Windows Store apps?

  • It doesn't show up now. This is an implementation detail which can change at any time.

  • Thanks for the clarification, Rob.  I would be so nice for app users to have that.
