  • This is by design, you can get more info on App Icons and Logos to understand how the sizing for tiles works.

    "For medium tiles, limit the icon width to 66% and height to 50% of tile size. This prevents overlapping of elements in the branding".

    The medium tile is the image that is being displayed on the store and the generator in Visual Studio applies 66% padding around it by default. You can disable this by un-checking "Apply recommended padding" check box in the generator. You should be able to see the same image as the image on the Store in the generator preview in Medium Tile section.

  • Hi Eric,

    What is your StoreLogo.png pixels? How did you get this picture? Is it generated by the Visual Generator or other tools? How do you set the configuration for the Store logo option in the Store listing page when you submit your app? Please provide me more details to analyze your issue(Don't include the personal information).

    Best regards

  • I guess the Microsoft Defaults suck and should be changed.
