Desktop applications can be automated in two main ways:
The first two (test automation) ensure the continuous monitoring and testing of critical business processes, allowing the business to detect errors at a very early stage before they reach the end-users.
Types of Applications Supported by TestingWhiz
TestingWhiz’s desktop automation testing tool supports testing of:
Universal Windows Platform (UWP)
Windows Forms (WinForms)

Reporting capabilities are available for desktop automation like the time taken for test execution, the number of test cases executed, passed, failed, etc.
Allows the user to capture the screenshot in case of any failure of test cases during the execution
Allows fast implementation of new test cases
Requires very little knowledge of software automation to create the test cases
