  • UseHalf
    • The window uses 50% (half) of the available horizontal screen pixels.
  • UseMore
    • The window uses more than 50% of the available horizontal screen pixels.
  • UseMinimum
    • The window uses the minimum horizontal pixel width (either 320 or 500 pixels) specifies in the app's manifest (such as package.appxmanifest).

NoteDesired view is available only when the schema is set to Windows 8.1 from the Build Page.
