How to launch the Settings app (XAML)

Launch the built-in Settings app by using the ms-settings URI scheme described in this topic.

For example, the following line of code displays the page of Wi-Fi settings.

using Windows.System;
...
bool result = 
    await Launcher.LaunchUriAsync(new Uri("ms-settings:network-wifi"));

For more info about launching apps by using URI schemes, see How to launch the default app for a URI.
