    Win32 apps leave all sorts of stuff, like temp files and unused registry keys and entries...

    Is this also the case for UWP?

    I don’t think. Maybe a little but nothing compared to regular win32 apps

    Why shouldn't, do You know any reason why shouldn't?
    How and why should UWP apps (Universal Windows Platform apps) behave differently than non-universal ones?
    I don't know reason why they shouldn't.
