Five-hundred-and-twelve 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.

The new version of the virtualization software brings support for TPM 1.2 and 2, and Secure Boot. Installing a Windows 11 system on a host system that supports TPM and Secure Boot will no longer result in a "system incompatible" warning during installation.

The new version includes numerous other changes, including support for encrypting virtual machines.
