Similar Android applock should be there which asks for password for windows apps, registry editor(not talking about group policy for disabling registry editor) etc. If anyone knows, please suggest such an app for windows.

I don't know of anything that replicates this perfectly but I use Secure Folders for this exact purpose. It allows you to deny the execution of applications and lock files/folders so they're unable to be opened unless you go into the Secure Folders application and turn off their protections.
Sadly you can't set it so you can just enter a password and unlock the resource when it's clicked but you can set a password on the Secure Folders application itself so no one can unlock anything without the password.

This is some thing all email clients should have, but sadly this feature is not present in most email clients.

What is it you're trying to solve or achieve? Surely full disk encryption and locking your PC/laptop if you're not in front of it would be the best way for good physical security.

Why doesn't windows have this android based software?
It's a Windows PC, not an Android phone.

Secure your user account with a PIN/Security key. Do not share your account with others.

You can search the web for third-party apps, but here are some alternatives within Windows 10 OS;

Kiosk (assigned access) mode, but due to it's design as a 'Kiosk', it's very limited and probably not what you're looking for.

Family options aka Parental controls, but a Microsoft account is required.

Sure they do with Windows Enterprise. You can restrict which users can access which programs.
