Best Windows 10 apps this week

Three-hundred-and-eighty-eight in a series. Welcome to this week's overview of the best apps, games and extensions released for Windows 10 on the Microsoft Store in the past seven days.

Microsoft released the Windows 10 May 2020 update this week. Mark published a guide on how to get the update at this point (as it is being rolled out gradually). Make sure you check the number of issues that it has before you start the upgrade.

As always, if I've missed an app or game that has been released this week that you believe is particularly good, let me know in the comments below or notify me via email.

Discounts this week

The following list is a selection of the best deals. Make sure you check out the Store for all offers.

Some apps are discounted for more than one week. Only new apps and games are listed below. Check out the previous post in the series for past offers that may still be valid.

New Windows apps and games

Minecraft Dungeons ($19.99)

Minecraft Dungeons is a new dungeon crawler that is set in the Minecraft Universe. It is a standalone game that is available for Windows 10 and Xbox at the time of writing.

It features multiplayer (up to four players) and single-player action, and comes with all the features that you expect from a dungeon crawler including finding loot, quests, combat, power ups and different environments and levels.

Windows Package Manager YAML Generator

The simply application enables you to create YAML files for applications so that they may be included in the new Windows Package Manager repo (and thus installed using winget).

Windows Terminal (Preview)

Windows Terminal Preview is the Store version of the new Windows Terminal program that Microsoft released as a stable version last week.

It has the same feature set and you may use it to open one or multiple terminal applications, e.g. PowerShell and Command Prompt, in a single window.

Even better, you may separate these using tabs or display them in the same tab using panes.

Windows 10 themes

Water Retreat PREMIUM, 20 4K images of water retreats.
