Shell Integration

The discussion in the previous chapter ended with a sample that used a background task to send a toast notification to the user whenever a contact was added to the user’s contacts store. Before you get into notifications, you will be looking at some lesser known integration points between UWP apps and the Windows System they reside on. Specifically, your focus in this chapter will be on the approach to windowing, working with title bars (which you used to style Big Mountain X in the last chapter), wallpapers and lock screens, and how UWP apps have the ability to modify the images they display. (You used the user profile APIs in the last chapter when you built a background task that was able to change the user’s desktop wallpaper.)
