  • You need to use Visual Studio 2012 to create a Windows 8 project. Once it is created you can update it in non-express versions of VS 2013.

    There is no automated way to downgrade the app. You will need to copy the files to the Windows 8 project and manually remove any Windows 8.1 code.

    You can likely share much but not all code via PCLs or linked files.
