This is something that should be handled at the operating system level
inside of macOS or Windows etc.

Just my 2 cents.

I am very sad to say, we simply can't afford to develop and test how to integrate LC for even the most popular system. This is an area where I really wish LiveCode Ltd. would do some research and open a Feature Exchange to add whatever is needed to make LC apps compliant. We'd contribute, but just can't take it on all by ourselves.
