What are the possibilities for a system cleaner in uwp?

I need a suggestion. I see a large gap between the capabilities and the requirements even for a simple system cleaner, since there are too many restrictions. Cleaning the recycle bin & un-installing unused apps are undoubtfully essential, but there seems not a solution in uwp. Reading the registry, reading the hidden files and more. so, I would like to know what are the possibilities for a simple system cleaner in uwp(C#). Thanks in advance.

Hello,​

Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

If I understand you correctly, you want to create a system cleaner app using UWP, right?

UWP application is a sandbox application, which is located in an isolated environment at runtime. In principle, UWP applications do not interfere with each other and can only communicate in a limited number of ways and UWP applications could not reading the registry as well.

So if you want to develop system cleaning related applications, it might be better to use some other techniques like traditional desktop apps.

Thanks.
