  • I'd recommend updating to the RTM version of Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio 2013.

    If you still have trouble then please post the code you use for the Appbar and your exact repro steps. I just ran the sample and the Appbar shows up for me as expected when I drag up from the bottom of the screen.

  • This is a bug in VS 2013 RC. As Rob suggested, use the RTM version of Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio 2013 and both of them are available for download now. There is no need to stick with the RC version.

  • Thanks. I think my confusion comes form the fact das in the Visual Studio 2012 DirectX Xaml App template the bottom Appbar shows up when right clicking. However in the Visual Studio 2013 RC DirectX Xaml App template this does not seem to be the case. Any Idea what's up with that? Thank you.
