  • This would not be a candidate scenario for a Metro style application in my opinion. Metro style applications as a general rule should not have the ability to modify system settings.

     

    For suggestions or requests of this nature, you can use the Connect Feedback tool to request an API to provide this for capability (in this case for Desktop app consumption).
