New Windows apps and games


FileExplorerGallery is an open source image viewer for Windows. It is designed to let you quickly view all images of the active folder in Windows.

A tap on the F12-key opens the image viewer after a folder with images has been opened in File Explorer.

Users may then use the mouse or keyboard to navigate images, and use other supported features such as zooming, rotating or starting a slideshow.


TaskbarXI is an open source tool that adds customization options to the Windows 11 taskbar.

The current set of features include support for multiple monitors, turning the taskbar into a dock, support for separate DPI scaling and more.

Notable updates

Files 2.1, file manager, introduces support for ARM64 and Nextcloud.

Handbrake 1.5.1, a new version of the open source video transcoder, changed its system requirements to Windows 10 or newer, and Microsoft .NET 6.x.
