Best Windows apps this week
Four-hundred-seventy-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 released several out-of-bands patches this week that address VPN connection issues and other issues.
