ElementDescription

WindowsInfo

The WindowsInfo element is the parent element of the WindowsInfo XML schema.

XSD

<xs:element name="LaunchDeviceStageFromExplorer" type="xs:boolean" default="false" minOccurs="0" />

Remarks

If the LaunchDeviceStageFromExplorer element is set to true (1), the operating system displays a Device Stage user interface when the user double-clicks the device icon for the device. The operating system performs these actions for the icon that represents the device, regardless of whether the device icon was specified through the DeviceIconFile element.

Important  This element can only be used for eligible devices that comply with the Device Stage participation and implementation requirements. Otherwise, Windows ignores this element in the device metadata package.

More information about the Device Stage user interface, along with the Device Stage participation and implementation requirements, can be found in the Microsoft Device Experience Development Kit.

The LaunchDeviceStageFromExplorer element is optional.
