Thank you very much for your reply Pete, I did try that one but that is not the solution in Windows 10 applications. Also, Visual Studio doesn't open the manifest editor (I am using Visual Studio 2015), it instead opened up XML editor.

Now, if you didn't know it before. I would give you the How-to of changing the application's name in Windows 10. In the manifest, there is another node Applications, which contains the UAP (Universal application platform) and other properties that each of the application under the project holds.

XML
<Applications>
    <Application Id="App"
      Executable="$targetnametoken$.exe"
      EntryPoint="Win10App.App">
      <uap:VisualElements
        DisplayName="My App"
        Square150x150Logo="Assets\Logo.png"
        Square44x44Logo="Assets\SmallLogo.png"
        Description="Win10App"
        BackgroundColor="#464646">
        <uap:SplashScreen Image="Assets\SplashScreen.png" />
      </uap:VisualElements>
    </Application>
  </Applications>


The DisplayName property of this Application was to be edited, not for the project (that was of project, or application... I am not sure, can you clear me?)

Anyways, the solution of yours is still applicable, because indeed it is the DisplayName property, but the child node was having some troubles.

Thank you.
