As a C++ developer, WinRT is definitely not something I would want to use, because of its limitations, to me nothing sounds more boring than "sandboxed windows applications".
However, I am a bit biased here, since I am not a big fan of MS dev environment. Anyway, I would prefer MFC over WinRT any time (and Qt over MFC, for that matter).
In any case, to answer the C++17 part, the areas where C++ is more powerful than ever is:
1. embedded,
2. car infotaiment systems,
3. Heavy apps like Adobe Photoshop or AutoCAD
4. AAA games and game engines
5. Cross-platform apps (Java and C# really sucks at crossplatform desktop apps)
6. Libraries
