Up to 10 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 3.0 MiB each and 30.0 MiB total.

Do you know how to do that from a WPF or WinForm app?

Hello,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

UWP is sandbox application, which means that its operating environment is isolated from the outside.

Currently UWP apps do not have the ability to control other apps, so you cannot control PowerPoint through UWP apps.

Thanks.

That's what I suspected but that seems to be a major limitation.
