How to add menu item to a appbar for app created using appstudio RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created few webapps using AppStudio. The apps work perfectly. The number of Appbar buttons is limited to 4 and only "About" page is listed as menu item.

    I want to know how to add more menu items and button to appbar so that when i click the button, it performs a specific action like " going to a webpage" or any other options. 

    Im editing the source code generated by appstudio in Visual Studio. I have no much programming knowledge. So i would like to have a better assistance (will be more helpful if its a video or with images or just a better description).

    Please help. 

    Thanks in Advance.

  • Have you tried following the walk-through and How-To documentation under the "App bar for Windows Phone" topic on MSDN?
