How can a website open an app?

Half way down this Microsoft page it says "Apps and Features Settings" I clicked it and it actually did open my settings on my computer. Is this like an OS setting to find requests from microsft.com then execute the command or was it a command from mincrosft.com with no relevance to the OS? Also is it only microsoft.com/settings that are able to do it, or can another site open, lets say skyrim?

Update:

If this is restricted to windows and the Microsoft site that would make sense then I would like to know as well.
