UWP App thumbnail preview custom title

shriram 75 Reputation points

I have an UWP app and i have option to open different pages in separate window and i want to each window with different title and i achieve it using "ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView()". But for the thumbnail preview it shows the display name which mentioned in Package.appxmanifest .

Is there any way to override those thumbnail preview title for an uwp?

    Hi @shriram ,

    It is recommended that you use ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView().Title to change the title of each view.

    string newTitle="TitleTest";
    ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView().Title = newTitle;

    You can get more information in the official samples MultipleViews

    Thank you.
