Best Windows 10 apps this week
Four-hundred-and-ten 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.

New Windows apps and games
Lenovo Display Control Center is a free app by Lenovo to manage the display of Lenovo devices better.
The app displays information about the connected monitor and provides basic and advanced options to change various preferences such as the contrast, brightness, or RGB gain value right from the app.
Path Length Checker is an open source desktop program for Microsoft Windows devices designed to scan a directory, e.g. the root of a drive or a project folder, for files and folders that exceed the operating system's path restrictions.
Certain operations, e.g. the deletion of files or folders, may fail if the path limit of 260 characters is exceeded.
The program can be used to connect Samsung Galaxy EarBuds using the Windows PC, and to check the charging status of the earbuds and the case.
