A window (also called an app view) is the displayed portion of a Windows Runtime app. On Windows, a user's screen can have up to 4 windows of variable width displayed simultaneously. They do not overlap, and their top and bottom edges touch the top and bottom edges of the screen. There may be non-window areas between adjacent windows.
The window is not the same thing as the current page of the application. It is better thought of as the container of the pages; you can use the window reference in your program for all the pages of the application.
Each window has a corresponding CoreWindow that represents the UI processing thread (including the core input handlers and event dispatcher) for the window.
To obtain an object of this type, call ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView.
Do not use the value returned in the ApplicationView.Value property when creating a page layout. This method is deprecated and may not be available in future releases.
|Windows version||SDK version||Value added|
Gets a value that indicates whether the current window is in close proximity to the left edge of the screen.
Gets a value that indicates whether the current window is in close proximity to the right edge of the screen.
Gets a value that indicates the bounds used by the framework to lay out the contents of the window (app view).
Gets or sets a value that indicates how an app in full-screen mode responds to edge swipe actions.
Gets the ID of the window (app view).
IsFullScreen may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 10. Instead, use IsFullScreenMode.
Gets a value that indicates whether the window touches both the left and right sides of the display.

Gets the current orientation (landscape or portrait) of the window (app view) with respect to the display.
Gets or sets a string that identifies this view for tracking and saving state.
Gets or sets the size that the app launches with when the ApplicationView.PreferredLaunchWindowingMode property is set to PreferredLaunchViewSize, except in cases where the system manages the window size directly.
Gets or sets a value that indicates the windowing mode the app launches with.
SuppressSystemOverlays may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 10. Instead, use TryEnterFullScreenMode and FullScreenSystemOverlayMode.

Indicates whether the app terminates when the last window is closed.
Gets or sets the displayed title of the window.
Gets the title bar of the app.
Gets the context identifier for the view.
ApplicationView static methods may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Instead, use ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView to get an ApplicationView object.
Gets the state of the current window (app view).
Gets the app view mode for the current view.
Gets the visible region of the window (app view). The visible region is the region not occluded by chrome such as the status bar and app bar.
Gets the windowing environment for the view.
Clears any properties the system has saved for any view PersistedStateId for the given application.
Clears any properties the system has saved for the view with the specified identifier for the given application.
Takes the app out of full-screen mode.
Gets the window ID that corresponds to a specific CoreWindow managed by the app.
Returns the collection of display regions available for the view.
Gets the view state and behavior settings of the active application.
Determines whether the specified view mode is supported on the current device.
Sets a value indicating the bounds used by the framework to lay out the contents of the window (app view).
Sets the smallest size, in effective pixels, allowed for the app window.
Shows system UI elements, like the title bar, over a full-screen app.
Tries to close the current app view. This method is a programmatic equivalent to a user initiating a close gesture for the app view.
Attempts to place the app in full-screen mode.

Attempts to change the app view to the specified view mode using the specified options.
Attempts to change the size of the view to the specified size in effective pixels.
TryUnsnap may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Apps can be continuously resized, but cannot be snapped, starting in Windows 8.1. Also, ApplicationView static methods may be altered or unavailable for releases after Windows 8.1. Use ApplicationView.GetForCurrentView to get an ApplicationView object.
Attempts to unsnap a previously snapped app. This call will only succeed when the app is running in the foreground.
Attempts to unsnap a previously snapped app.
Occurs when the window is removed from the list of recently used apps, or if the user executes a close gesture on it.
This event is raised when the value of VisibleBounds changes, typically as a result of the status bar, app bar, or other chrome being shown or hidden.
