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.

Store Icon Text overlay: Pinned vs Menu

In the HoloLens menu, the icon in the Pinned menu has a text overlay covering the bottom part of the icon. The icon in the full menu uses the same source art, but there is no text overlay. In a future update can we specify separate source artwork for each of these 2 icons?


  • My first impression it that having two different graphics for the pinned menu and the all-apps menu would be confusing for the average user. That said, if your scenario really needs two different graphics, please use the feedback hub to make that a feature request.
