  • Hi AdamFatyga,

    Please try double-click the ManPage.xaml to check whether it can open the XAML Designer. And what do you see when you open the MainPage.xaml?

    If there just show XAML code, please right-click the UWP app and choose the Properties to open the Properties window. Please set the target version to Build 10240.

    If there has any error message, please tell us what the detailed message information.

    Then please check whether you have installed the Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.0/8.1 Tools for your Visual Studio 2015. If not, please install it from Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Visual Studio Community 2015 -> Change -> Modify.

    In addition, please tell us which version of Windows you are using. As far as I know, if you create a Windows 10 app on Windows 8/8.1, the XAML designer won't load because it is not supported in low version of Windows.
