Microsoft release PowerToys v0.37.0

Microsoft have released the latest version of PowerToys, a collection of utilities for power users to tune and streamline Windows.

There are some great tools available in PowerToys including:

  • FancyZones: Allows you to create window layouts to make multitasking easier.
  • File Explorer add-ons: Allows you to manage Windows Explorer custom handlers, including .svg and .mp files.
  • Image resizer: Allows you to resize images by right-clicking on them.
  • Keyboard Manager: A handy keyboard remapper that’s applied across Windows 10.
  • PowerRenamer: An extension to the Windows shell for advanced bulk renaming using search and replace or regular expressions.
  • PowerToys Run: Accessed by ALT + Space by default, opens a quick launcher.
