App icon in default program RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see in default programs list, metro apps are getting displayed. Where from are those icons, pulled from?

    is there any specific sizing we'll need to stick to for these tiles, I have an issue in that the icon is not properly scaling in higher DPI monitor.

  • Hi,

    Please see Choosing your app images

    And To provide a good experience across different screen resolutions, we recommend including scaled versions of the images in your app. Note that the scaled images should be designed for the image size, not simply resized from the original image. Providing these scaled images is optional. See Optimizing images for different screen resolutions for more info.

    Best Wishes!
