How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Add a Windows API to show progress on the taskbar

Right now we can't show progress on the taskbar for example to let a user see the current status of a download or something else. Media player buttons are possible in the taskbar but why not the progressbar?

        I believe Microsoft Edge is UWP application, and yet it can show download progress. I think the API may already be there but it is not open for public.
