    @safiya thani: Based on your brief description, what you describe should be possible relatively easily.  No, I don't have any examples, but you really just need to figure out how to launch the documents you want to open programmatically.  This should get you started in the right direction:

    Hi Bob! If I want to upload a Windows Store app, what is the procedure? I heard that students can upload maximum 3 apps for free. Is this true?

    Also, is there any way I can show limited numbers of Grids on default.html page but show the whole content in groupDetail.html page? Like in 'French' (Contosso Cookbook) grid, I have 8 items, but want to show only four on the main page but when user clicks on the 'French' link below the header title, the groupDetail.html shows full 8 items. I mean having lots of grids kills the experience.

    @Rutul: For submission, start here:

    To restrict the number of items, you'll do that programmatically by changing the number of items in your collection.  In other words, if you only want 8 items, you'll remove all the other items in the collection.  Hope that helps!

    Hey Bob,
    I am working on a windows 8 app and I am desperatley trying to figure out how to make different page styles for different sections. For instance, having a music library connected in.
    How would I go about doing this?
    I am also wondering how to change the basic styling from either Light or Dark CSS files?
    Thanks, Matt.

    @Matt: have you looked over at the Windows dev center?  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229519
