Use this template to prototype and design the Windows graphic user interface.
"In human–computer interaction, WIMP stands for "windows, icons, menus, pointer", denoting a style of interaction using these elements of the user interface. ... Other expansions are sometimes used, substituting "mouse" and "mice" or "pull-down menu" and "pointing", for menus and pointer, respectively. ...
In a WIMP system:
(1) A window runs a self-contained program, isolated from other programs that (if in a multi-program operating system) run at the same time in other windows.
(2) An icon acts as a shortcut to an action the computer performs (e.g., execute a program or task).
(3) A menu is a text or icon-based selection system that selects and executes programs or tasks.
(4) The pointer is an onscreen symbol that represents movement of a physical device that the user controls to select icons, data elements, etc.
(5) cut, copy, and paste.
This style of system improves human–computer interaction (HCI) by emulating real-world interactions and providing better ease of use for non-technical people - both novice and power users. Users can carry skill at a standardized interface from one application to another.
Due to the nature of the WIMP system, simple commands can be chained together to undertake a group of commands that would have taken several lines of command line instructions." [WIMP (computing). Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Windows 8 apps" contains 40 shortcut icons of Windows 8 software applications.
Use this shortcut UI icon set to design graphic user interface (GUI) prototypes of your software apps for Windows 8.
"In computing, a file shortcut is a handle in a user interface that allows the user to find a file or resource located in a different directory or folder from the place where the shortcut is located.

Shortcuts are typically implemented as a small file containing a target URI or GUID to an object, or the name of a target program file that the shortcut represents. The shortcut might additionally specify parameters to be passed to the target program when it is run. Each shortcut can have its own icon. Shortcuts are very commonly placed on a desktop, in an application launcher panel such as the Microsoft Windows Start menu, or in the main menu of a desktop environment. ...
File shortcuts (also known as shell links) were introduced in Windows 95. Microsoft Windows uses .lnk as the filename extension for shortcuts to local files, and .URL for shortcuts to remote files, like web pages. Commonly referred to as "shortcuts" or "link files", both are displayed with a curled arrow overlay icon by default, and no filename extension. ...
Shortcut files can be used to launch programs in minimized or maximized window states if the program supports it. ...
Beginning with Windows 7, some shortcuts also store Application User Model IDs (AppUserModelIDs). Instead of the target command line, AppUserModelIDs may directly be used to launch applications. Shortcuts with AppUserModelIDs are used by some desktop programs and all WinRT Modern apps for launching." [File shortcut. Wikipedia]

How to Design a Mockup of Windows 8 User Interface

The launch of Windows 8 with its the new tile-based Modern UI design brings a lot of new opportunities for both designers and developers to build new apps.

It is important to know how the user will interact with the UI, and how functionality and appearance will change, depending on the features being used at any one time. The Modern UI design style has its own unique principles and typography that can be managed using ConceptDraw PRO. The ability to design Windows 8 User Interface is delivered by the Windows 8 User Interface solution for Conceptdraw PRO. Read more

Use this menu UI icon set to design graphic user interface (GUI) prototypes of your software applications for Windows 8.
"A menu bar is a graphical control element which contains drop down menus. The menu bar's purpose is to supply a common housing for window- or application-specific menus which provide access to such functions as opening files, interacting with an application, or displaying help documentation or manuals. Menu bars are typically present in graphical user interfaces that display documents and representations of files in windows and windowing systems but menus can be used as well in command line interface programs like text editors or filemanagers where drop-down menu is activated with shortcut key or combination. ...
The menu bar in Microsoft Windows is usually anchored to the top of a window under the title bar; therefore, there can be many menu bars on screen at one time. Menus in the menu bar can be accessed through shortcuts involving the Alt key and the mnemonic letter that appears underlined in the menu title. Additionally, pressing Alt or F10 brings the focus on the first menu of the menu bar." [Menu bar. Wikipedia]

"A message dialog is an overlay UI element that provides a stable and contextual surface that is always modal and explicitly dismissed. Message dialogs appear at a consistent location on the screen. ...
Error messages that apply to the overall app context use message dialogs. ...
- Use message dialogs to convey urgent information that the user must see and acknowledge before continuing. ...
- Use message dialogs to present blocking questions that require the user's input. A blocking question is a question where the application cannot make a choice on the user's behalf, and cannot continue to fulfill it's value proposition to the user. A blocking question should present clear choices to the user. It is not a question that can be ignored or postponed.
- Use message dialogs to ask for explicit action from the user or to deliver a message that is important for the user to acknowledge. ...
- Use custom dialogs when the app or the system must invest a significant amount of time in the ensuing actions such that an accidental dismiss would be detrimental to the user's confidence.
- All dialogs should clearly identify the user's objective in the first line of the dialog's text (with or without a title).
- Don't use message dialogs when the app needs to confirm the user's intention for an action that the user has taken. Instead, a flyout is the appropriate surface. ...
- Don't use message dialogs for errors that are contextual to a specific place on the page, such as validation errors (in password fields, for example), use the app's canvas itself to show inline errors." [msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh738363.aspx]

"A graphical control element or widget is an element of interaction in a graphical user interface (GUI), such as a button or a scroll bar. Controls are software components that a computer user interacts with through direct manipulation to read or edit information about an application. ...
Each widget facilitates a specific type of user-computer interaction, and appears as a visible part of the application's GUI as defined by the theme and rendered by the rendering engine. The theme makes all graphical control elements adhere to a unified aesthetic design and creates a sense of overall cohesion. Some widgets support interaction with the user, for example labels, buttons, and check boxes. Others act as containers that group the widgets added to them, for example windows, panels, and tabs."
