New Windows apps and games

Files

Files is an open source file manager for Windows 10 that can be used instead of the default File Explorer.

It features a modernized design and makes use of Windows 10 platform-specific features such as Fluent Design, seamless updates, and the use of APIs.

Sherlock: Hidden Match-3 Cases

Sherlock: Hidden Match-3 Cases is a casual game with beautiful graphics that merges "hidden object" and "match-3" type of games into a single one.

It has a Sherlock Holmes theme to it and a story that you can follow. The game uses certain monetization mechanics, e.g. energy that is needed to play levels, and that means that you will either have to wait for energy to replenish over time, or use the in-game shop to buy items that replenish it.

Notable updates

Sysmon 13 has been released with malware process tampering detection.

UltraUXThemePatcher update introduces support for Windows 10 20H1, the next major Windows 10 update.
