I generated the UWP application package through the MSIX Packaging Tool. After installing this package, we cannot find this application from the Kiosk App list during the process of setting the Kiosk mode.

Hi, @Andrew_Wang

Best,

One point of clarification.  the MSIX Packaging Tool creates an MSIX Package, but not a UWP app.  UWP Apps are specifically built in line with specific APIs and guidelines, they are packaged with MSIX.  

 

I think it is a fare ask to see if we can support more app types with Kiosk mode, but traditional Win32 apps are not supported today.
