for internal and external. KSP this time raised the topic "Facts About Applications in Windows
10 That Might Surprise You ”and was delivered by an experienced ISTTS lecturer
namely Mr. Riandika Lumaris, S.Kom., M.Kom.
Mr. Riandika began his presentation by saying it was an application at
Windows 10 will be the main topic today. "Windows 7 support already
Ended on January 14, 2020, so there are still those who use Windows 7 out
just now, "joked Mr. Riandika who responded with happy emoticons by the participants
KSP in live presentation.
"Technology now is far different from the technology used to be," said Pak Riandika.
Technology is always changing. This can be seen from the PC with the latest design (laptop,
convertibles, detachables, 2-in-1 tablets, mixed reality reality, collaboration devices), ways
new interactions (touch, pen, voice, dial, gesture, gaze) and a new UI system that supports
a new way of interaction for the latest PC design.
Desktop applications or other Win32 applications are the usual applications
run on a desktop PC. Characteristics of Desktop Applications include: installation with EXE or
MSI, the technology has matured so there are already many applications, designed
for desktop PCs specifically designed for using a mouse and
Now many applications are based on Desktop Apps, this type of application
it has several black sides such as: no battery saving, burdensome OS startup
(approve application settings to start at startup), can install programs without
Receive, have access to cameras, microphones, etc. at any time and process
Uninstalling is difficult because there are always files and registry left behind.
With technology that is always changing and the black side that desktop applications have, then
what's the solution? Mr. Riandika answers this question in 2 words: UWP Apps.
UWP application (Universal Window Application) is an application that can run on many
Windows 10 based devices. To check the applications that we do
including the UWP Application or not, Mr. Riandika provides simple tips with
click Shift + Win + Enter key on the keyboard. When entering full screen mode
then the application includes UWP applications.
The advantages of UWP Apps include: supporting various types of input, application design
modern, battery saving, safer security and privacy with easy installation with
install through Microsoft Store or other official sites. Additionally deleted
the application also becomes easier by simply clicking the "uninstall" button.
Unlike Desktop Applications, UWP applications will not leave files and registry on a PC
after the application is removed.
UWP applications run in containers and by default, applications cannot
microphone, camera and more access - so security and privacy are more affordable.
Windows 10 itself also has a feature to manage permissions
given for each application.
"Unlike desktop applications that can access at any time, if UWP has to be appropriate
licensing users, "said Pak Riandika," so really, the user is in control, "he added.
Then whether UWP Apps will ask for Desktop Apps? Mr. Riandika answered:
Not for now. This is caused by the many desktop applications available
now and UWP applications can only run on Windows 10 in a few
the application must be able to support previous versions of Windows OS.
Pak Riandika advised the participants to always prioritize using the UWP Application
and install applications from the Microsoft Store. "[This] is for our good
together, "he said.
