Windows.UI.StartScreen namespace

Provides ways for apps to integrate with the Start screen, such as the creation of secondary tiles and the customization of jump lists.


The Windows.UI.StartScreen namespace has these types of members:


JumpList Provides functionality for selecting the type of system-managed jump list that is used by an app, adding custom task entry points to an app's jump list, and adding custom groups to an app's jump list.
JumpListItem Provides functionality for creating and defining jump list items for an app's jump list.
SecondaryTile Creates, enumerates, and provides information about a secondary tile.
SecondaryTileVisualElements Contains properties through which you can get or set a secondary tile's background color, foreground text, tile images, and app name display options.
VisualElementsRequest Provides a method to delay the display of the Pin to Start flyout, as well as methods through which you can set the visual elements of the secondary tile to be presented in that flyout as well as alternate versions of the tile that can also be presented as options.
VisualElementsRequestDeferral A deferral object used during the creation of the Pin to Start flyout. By using this object, the app can delay the display of the flyout while it gathers the information and assets that will be shown in that flyout.

The Windows.UI.StartScreen namespace has these enumerations.
