Add to your App constructors:

public sealed partial class App
    private IHost AppHost { get; }

    public App()
        AppHost = Host
            .ConfigureServices(static services =>
                // Add all available interactions
                // or add only what you need
                services.AddSingleton<IFileInteractions, FileInteractions>();
                services.AddSingleton<IMessageInteractions, MessageInteractions>();
                services.AddSingleton<IWebInteractions, WebInteractions>();

        // Optional. Displays unhandled exceptions using MessageInteractions.Exception.

        // your code


// Open
var file = await FileInteractions.OpenFileAsync(new OpenFileArguments
    SuggestedFileName = "my.txt",
    Extensions = new[] { ".txt" },
    FilterName = "My txt files",
if (file == null)
var text = await file.ReadTextAsync().ConfigureAwait(true);

// Save (if you need to save file from previuos step)
await file.WriteTextAsync(text).ConfigureAwait(false);

// Save As
var file = await FileInteractions.SaveFileAsync(new SaveFileArguments(".txt")
    SuggestedFileName = "my.txt",
    FilterName = "My txt files",
if (file == null)
await file.WriteTextAsync(text).ConfigureAwait(false);


await MessageInteractions.ShowMessageAsync("Message");
await MessageInteractions.ShowWarningAsync("Warning");
await MessageInteractions.ShowExceptionAsync(new InvalidOperationException("Exception"));
bool question = await MessageInteractions.ShowQuestionAsync(new QuestionData("Are you sure?"));

WinUI requires a window to display the ContentDialog, so you'll need to set it explicitly in your App.OnLaunched:

protected override void OnLaunched(LaunchActivatedEventArgs args)
    var window = new Window();
    MessageInteractions.Window = window;


await WebInteractions.OpenUrlAsync("");


// WPF
// UWP/Uno
    dragAndDrop:DragAndDropExtensions.DragFilesEnterCommand="{Binding DragFilesEnter}"
    dragAndDrop:DragAndDropExtensions.DragTextEnterCommand="{Binding DragTextEnter}"
    dragAndDrop:DragAndDropExtensions.DragLeaveCommand="{Binding DragLeave}"
    dragAndDrop:DragAndDropExtensions.DropFilesCommand="{Binding DropFiles}"
    dragAndDrop:DragAndDropExtensions.DropTextCommand="{Binding DropText}"

Command arguments: DragFilesEnterCommand - FileData[] - Array of files.
DragTextEnterCommand - string - Text.
DragLeaveCommand - null.
DropFilesCommand - FileData[] - Array of files.
DropTextCommand - string - Text.
