Desktop Bridge Apps & User Transition
The Windows 10 Creators Update will enable desktop app developers to provide a smooth user transition from the previous desktop app to the store version. This topic includes transition of the user’s taskbar pin(s), start menu tile(s), file type associations, and protocol handlers. In addition, we cover best practices to migrate user data and uninstall the previous desktop app. Users will be encouraged to download the store version of their desktop apps. If the user already has the previous desktop version of the app, the transition experience should be as seamless as possible.
