Creating "Common" Folder

    Question

  • I am trying to follow some tutorials for making Windows Store Apps and several of them have mentioned that if I delete the MainPage.xaml file and then add a new blank page, a folder called "Common" will be created with certain useful files.  This worked once, but has never worked again for me.  Why might this be?  Is there a setting I can search for that will restore the function of creating the Common folder?

  • Upon more careful reading, it appears my problem was not reading carefully enough.  Creating a "Blank" page doesn't create a common folder, but creating a "Basic" page appears to.  Hopefully this solves my problem.

  • Hi Ryan,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Since this issue is related to the Windows Store, so we will move this issue to Windows and Windows Phone apps forum: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsapps/en-us/home?category=windowsapps , you will get better support.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Ryan,

    Exactly, creating Basic page will automatically create Common folder and put missing files inside.
