As an amateur web developer I’m intrested in building native apps for Windows 8 with
CSS. But It would be nice to see the source code of the apps that I have and which language they are written in.
Where can I find that source code? Or is it even available? I mean some of the apps must be open source?
Here is Solutions:
We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.
You can find the source code for some of the apps in: (There’s probably another folder since this isn’t all the apps I have)
For those of you who do not have permissions to access the folder follow these instructions:
- Type in “C:\Program Files\Applications” in the Windows Explorer address bar and hit enter.
- Observe in shock and dismay the system dialogue saying you don’t own a folder on your own machine. Hit “Continue”.
- After hitting “Continue”, you’ll be confronted by the following dialogue:
Do not hit “close”, instead click the “security tab” link.
- In the following system dialogue click “advanced”.
- Click the “change” link in the owner security field.
- Add in your live ID or windows 8 user name to the “select user or group” system dialogue.
- Click “OK”, Click “OK”, Click “Ok”.

You can get examples of metro/modernui/window store app code here from MS’s code snippet site – there’s more specific samples here. And of course, how to do hello world here. They seem to cover a good range of things and unless you specifically want to have a modified version of say, the mail app, are probably easier to make use of
Why get the apple from the barrel, when you can get it from the tree?
Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
