Best Windows apps this week
Five-hundred-and-sixty 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.
Classic Windows troubleshooting tools will be retired in the coming years. Microsoft plans to replace some of them with the Get Help tool, which acts as a go-to app for troubleshooting tasks on Windows.
