Best Windows 10 apps this week

Four-hundred-and-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.

Future versions of Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system may notify users when apps get added to the system's autostart; users may go directly to the startup apps section of the Settings app to manage these then.

Windows 10 version 1909 and newer support hardware-accelerated AV1 video provided that the minimum requirements are met.


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.
