Launching Built-In Apps

In addition to handling protocol requests, the Windows.System.Launcher class allows you to launch some of the phone’s built-in apps. For example, the following demonstrates how to launch the built-in Wi-Fi settings app:

Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri("ms-settings-wifi:"));

Table 30.6 lists URIs that can be used to launch other built-in apps.
