how to extent app's tile right click function RRS feed

  • Question

  • when I right click a tile,  it appear "unpin", "advance" and so on on the bottom.

    1.Sometime there is not "advance" option, Sometime it has, why ?

    2.Can I add some other function ? like Context Menu Handler?

    3.Can I arrange the tile by programming?

    Is there any API ?

  • Hey Wendy_qin,


    You will see the "Advanced" option for non Metro style applications that are pinned to the Start screen (for example Windows Explorer). You may also see the "Advanced" option for the Metro Internet Explorer if you have the desktop Internet Explorer pinned to the Taskbar.


    For your remaining questions please reach out to the "Building Metro style apps with..." forum with the applicable programming language which can be found by following the link below.
