So Microsoft wants to use the UWP in Windows 10


This is how Microsoft intends to strengthen the development and use of UWP applications in the Windows 10 system in the future

At the same time that Windows 10 saw the light, the ones we now know as UWP applications belonging to the Universal Windows Platform for the mentioned operating system were born.

However, this is a type of application that, at least to date, has not had the acceptance that the firm would like, although it has not yet been rendered with the format. In fact, there are some who now doubt that the Microsoft Universal Windows Platform has a future, something that the company itself categorically denies announcing that everything around the UWP > He is very much alive. Despite all this, the truth is that the Win32 tools are still there and are very important part of Windows 10 computers even in 2019 .

Initially, when the UWP platform was launched on 2015 , the firm promised that it would provide applications with better performance and security, since they would be downloaded and updated from the official store , the Microsoft Store . In this way the developers could use a set of programming interfaces for the latest Redmond system, but of course, these would only work here, on Windows 10. Because of this, the same developers were urged to strive to ensure that your projects were compatible with UWP , leaving Win32 aside, which could have been a mistake.

About of this whole issue and based on statements by Kevin Gallo , vice president of the Windows development platform, what Microsoft intends now is to reverse that division between both platforms, that is to say, that during the last year it has been trying to unite the Win32 desktop applications and the UWP, all adding elements of the second type to the first. In this way, what is wanted is that in the future all of them will become part of a set that will be called “Windows Applications'”, says Gallo himself.

Microsoft wants to make an approach between the Win32 and UWP apps

Yes, this is a project for the future, so that point has not yet been reached, but the final idea is to make all the features of the Windows 10 platform accessible to all application developers . In fact, over the past year, the Redmond-based firm introduced “XAML Islands,” a technology to help Windows developers use the elements of the user interface UWP in your existing Win32 applications.

At the same time, new measures have been taken in this same month with which He wants to take exclusive parts of the universal Windows platform up to now, such as WinUI, MSIX or Windows Terminal, so that they can also be used by Win32 developers, not just UWPs. Another step taken a few days before we saw it when Microsoft announced that unpacked Windows Win32 applications will be able to use Windows Runtime components, a function that will be activated in Windows 10 May 2019 Update and which allows access to more functions of the UWP ecosystem without the need to package the application .

Actually what will be achieved with this is to facilitate the current Win32 projects, although improved with the most modern features of Windows 10 and its UWP . In short, what Microsoft intends to get its UWP platform to move forward, is to make all functions available for all Windows work frameworks , both Win32 and UWP.
