The Windows App Studio ‘How-to’ section will take you through the steps from starting a new app to downloading an app package that is ready to be, extended, installed, or published to the store.
To start creating an app, log in to Windows App Studio using your Microsoft account. Once you are logged in you will land in the home page of the site.
Starting a new project
To start a new project, click either the big “Start now!” button, or selects the “Start new” link on the navigation bar.
After you click, you will be taken to the “Start new” page where you can select the Windows version you are targeting, and the template you would like to use by selecting one of the tabs underneath the navigation bar. We strongly recommend that you select with Windows 10 so that you can take advantage of the best features.
With Windows 10 you can publish a single package which will run on all Windows 10 devices (Phone, Surface, PC, and more).
Once you select the Windows version, you can select a template to use. Please skip ahead to the “Choosing and using templates” section to continue.
Updating Existing Projects
If you previously created projects, click on ‘My Projects’ on the top left of the screen and you will see the list of your projects.
On that page, you will see two tabs, one for Windows 10 and one for Windows 8.1
You can also create a new project from this page by clicking on the “Start now project” button, which is on the right side of the screen.
