FirstRunTask

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

The FirstRunTask setting specifies the background task that is active, or live, by default for a tile when a user signs in to Windows for the first time.

The background task must register the user with Windows Notification Service at first sign-in, and must send notifications to the app’s live tile.

Values

To make a tile live, do one of the following:

  • If your background task is in JavaScript, specify the .js file that implements the IBackgroundTask interface.

  • If your background task is in XAML or C++, specify the class ID for the application.
