windows app, windows program, windows exe…

In these contexts, “windows” doesn't mean “running in MS-windows and not web-based or phone-based”. Rather, it means “running in

MS-windows with a windows GUI”.

The other MSWindows-based app mode is “console” i.e. command-line based, when there's no GUI.

So I would say “windows app” means “non-console app”
