To be successful and make sense to users, multi-page navigation experiences in UWP apps include (described in detail later):
The right navigation structure
Building a navigation structure that makes sense to the user is crucial to creating an intuitive navigation experience.
Compatible navigation elements that support the chosen structure.
Navigation elements can help the user get to the content they want and can also let users know where they are within the app. However, they also take up space that could be used for content or commanding elements, so it’s important to use the navigation elements that are right for your app’s structure.
Appropriate responses to system-level navigation features (such as Back)
To provide a consistent experience that feels intuitive, respond to system-level navigation features in predictable ways.
The UI for the system back button is optimized for each form factor and input device type, but the navigation experience is global and consistent across devices and UWP apps.
Phone:
Global back navigation within the app and between apps.
Tablet:
Global back navigation within the app and between apps.
PC, Laptop, Tablet:
Back navigation within the app only. Does not support app-to-app navigation.
Back navigation does not act upon app-defined navigation elements such as tabs and pivots.
