  • Not from a Windows Store apps. Windows Store apps cannot examine the system directly, nor can they interact directly with other apps. They cannot launch specific apps directly, only files or URIs into whichever app (if any) the user has chosen to handle that file type. The app can suggest a default app to the Launcher if the user doesn't already have a handler installed.
