Windows 8 Is it possible to use Selenium WebDriver to automate native Windows-based dialog boxes?

I was recently asked how to handle window based pop ups, and I responded with the traditional solution of using third party tools like Auto It. The interviewer told me that Selenium has made great strides and that my answer was outdated. I took some online references but was unable to understand them.

Will the switchTo(WINDOW.TYPE) feature in Selenium4 cater this situation?

I would be grateful for any information or explanation.

yes they have gotten better but ten times crap is still crap in my book
