How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Get Screen Capture

Allow screen capture to be taken from background task OR through mdm protocol. This is useful for techs using mdm systems - for example if a user has an issue and calls their tech support, they can request a screen capture and help them resolve.

        We need a way to capture the current screen (as is displayed to the user) in a UWP application or UWP application background task in realtime, e.g. as is possible in Win32.

        Scenarios include being able to sync lights to the color of the screen etc.

        This may require a new Capability declaring, or could be linked into the Webcam capability.

        I want to capture the screen of the desktop and other of third party apps from within an UWP app. This would allow screencasts, remote access and similar use cases.

        On Win32 I can use .NET libraries such as Screna to easily capture screens, on UWP I can only render my own content.
