Pinned app windows 10 ignores tile color from browserconfig.xml #331
I have a Windows Surface (tablet) running Windows 10. When I pin my website as a pinned application then the tile color configured in browserconfig.xml is ignored. Windows derives a tile color from the configured favicon.
This is not the case on a regular desktop running windows 10. I have no clue why it is ignoring it.
My browserconfig.xml file's
Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0
Thank you for reporting.
I realize that the compatibility test is not helpful as it is today. When you add the test page to the Start Menu, as the icon is not transparent, there is no way to check the browser behavior.
I updated the test and ran it on Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0.
Even more confusing, I don't know where this purple (#7f34ed) comes from (not declared in another file, not the mean of the colors of the icon...).
Yellow is the color declared in the HTML TileColor meta.
