Best Windows apps this week
Four-hundred-fifty-four in a series. Welcome to this week's overview of the best apps, games and extensions released for Windows 10 and 11 on the Microsoft Store and elsewhere in the past seven days.
Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system will be released on October 5, 2021 officially. Not all Windows 10 devices will receive the update via Windows Update immediately, as Microsoft plans to roll out the new version of Windows gradually until mid 2022.
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.
