Saving files for metro apps in Windows 8/8.1 when printing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a query regarding saving files for metro apps Windows 8/8.1.

    Metro apps saves the file automatically  to the Document folder when we print.

    But I would like to save the files into a recommened folder like C:\users\tmp\

    Please suggest me, is there a way to save the files to a particular folder for metro apps in Windows 8/8.1.

    Thanks in Advance

  • As far as I know (and I may be wrong), there's no built-in file saving when printing documents.  How are you confirming that?

    You can save the file anywhere you want, as long as the user chooses the folder location using the FolderPicker.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
