To get an instance of ViewModePreferences, call the CreateDefault method.

These view mode preferences are requested values only. The system might override these values when your app is changed to the new view mode. Custom sizes that you specify are not guaranteed to be honored by Windows, so you should not write code that relies on never getting into a size that is smaller than the preferred minimum size or larger than the preferred maximum size. No error is returned when a preferred size is ignored.
