Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Pinned app missing title

    Yea I had this after RS4. I needed to reboot twice to fix it. After the first reboot the pinning would work but I lost the pinned apps after restart. But then after that second restart the pinned applications have worked as expected.

  • Reboot doesnt work for me

  • In visual studio check your Package.appxmanifest's Visual Assets tab. Under Display Settings there should be a 'Short Name'. Make sure that is populated.

    Also, be sure to delete the application from your device when re-installing it. Sometimes I've had properties linger when I just install on top of the same app.


  • yes all have short name attached.

    apps title are showing just fine before the update. however after updating, all existing and newly built ones from unity are missing the title. apps are working fine internally, just that it will be harder for us to select the correct app if there's no title on the pinned tiles.
