/*Solved*/ Creating Windows App with Visual Studio

I installed Visual Studio, and when I tried to create "Blank App (Universal Windows)", no matter whether I choose C# or JavaScript, it says Minimum platform version is Windows 10, but my Windows is Windows 8.1, and then the Project closes itself automatically immediately. What can I do?

If you really need to create desktop app from node, you should use Electron.js which allow you to access local files. https://electronjs.org

Dont use Apache Cordova, better use React Native or Flutter to build native apps.
