Best Windows apps this week

Five-hundred-and-seventy-eight 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.

Windows 10 is still the leading version of Windows when you compare usage. Microsoft published a video this week that it says helps users switch to Windows 11. It is doubtful that it is going to convince Windows 10 users to make the move, as it is relatively short and without meaningful arguments.

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.

Discounts this week

The following list is a selection of the best deals. Make sure you check out the Store for all offers.

Some apps are discounted for more than one week. Only new apps and games are listed below. Check out the previous post in the series for past offers that may still be valid.

New or notably improved Windows apps



CoMachina is a new open source tool that was designed by its developer to look like Windows Copilot. CoMachina does not let you talk with AI, but it has features that Windows Copilot lacks currently. It helps users make changes to the Windows 11 and 10 configuration.

The app is in an early stage and its developer is considering adding Copilot AI functionality and more to it in future versions.
