    • Original report description is meant to read like this. I got an error if I tried to submit it directly though.

      The fullscreen API works fine in the Edge browser, but from a UWP app it simply appears to offset the window content area and remains windowed.

      I don’t know where to report bugs that only happen in UWP apps, but since I understand they are powered by the same Edge browser engine, I’m reporting it here.

      Here is a VS2015 project that demonstrates the problem: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15217362/Win10fullscreentest.zip
      (just click the “Go fullscreen” button)

      This problem affects Construct 2 games exported as Windows 10 apps. See: https://www.scirra.com/forum/fullscreen-doesn-t-work-when-exported-to-windows-store-uwp_t180236

      I previously reported this on the old Connect system several months ago but it appears to have been mistakenly closed or misunderstood. The problem still occurs on Windows 10 with the Anniversary update.
