  • Hi Eric,

    Roaming app data and contracts are part of the immersive environment and not available to Desktop apps.

    I'm not sure what you mean for #2. Are you talking about the tile for your app or do you want to detect when switching to the Desktop?

    Since your question is about Desktop development and not Metro style app development I'll move this to the Windows Desktop Development forums for you.

    Yes, the #2 question is I want to detect when switching to the Desktop.
