You wrote: public sealed partial class MainPage : Save_the_Humans.Common.LayoutAwarePage { .... } I also wrote: Save_the_Humans.Common.LayoutAwarePage after the MainPage. But I get an error because "LayoutAwarePage" is not recognized. But when I just left the default: MainPage : Page, my program works. Why would I need the Save_the_Humans.Common.LayoutAwarePage?

In the 3rd paragraph you wrote: Windows.UI.Xaml.Conrols But it should be: Windows.UI.Xaml.Controls You're missing the "t" in Controls.
