Removing App from store RRS feed

  • Question

  • I mistakenly put up two instance of my windows phone 8 app on the store and would love to remove on of the instance from the store. I have gone through the dev dashboard and I have not seen a way to remove a submission from the store.

  • Hi,

    In order to unpublish your second app from the store you can create a new submission and set the Distribution and Visibility option to: Hide this app and prevent acquisition.

    You can find more info here:

    To completely stop selling an app and effectively "unpublish" it, create a new submission and set the Distribution and visibility option in the Pricing and availability page to Hide this app and prevent acquisition. You don’t have to remove any packages or make any other changes to your submission; once your submission goes through the certification process, the app will no longer be available to any new customers to download, or even to find in the Store via searching or browsing.
