PowerToys 0.65


PowerToysMicrosoft PowerToys is a set of utilities for power users to tune and streamline their Windows 10 experience for greater productivity.

For those who haven’t heard of PowerToys before, it’s a set of utilities for power users to tune and streamline their Windows experience for greater productivity. Inspired by the Windows 95 era PowerToys project, this reboot provides power users with tools to squeeze more out of the Windows 10 shell and customize it for their individual workflows. On May 8, 2019, Microsoft relaunched PowerToys and made them open-source on GitHub.

PowerToys for Windows 10 comes with the following utilities:

Color Picker adds a tool for color identification (in HEX, RGB, CMYK, HSL and HSV, among others).
FancyZones adds a window manager that makes it easier for users to create and use complex window layouts.
File Explorer (Preview Panes) adds SVG and Markdown previews to File Explorer.
Image Resizer adds a context menu to File Explorer for resizing images.
Keyboard Manager adds options for remapping keys and shortcuts.
PowerRename adds an option for users to rename files using search and replace or regular expression in File Explorer.
PowerToys Run adds a Spotlight-like tool that allows users to search for folders, files, applications, and other items.
Shortcut Guide adds a full screen overlay that allows the user to view the windows key shortcuts available in the current window.
Awake adds a system tray tool to keep a device awake and prevent Windows from allowing a device to sleep or hibernate.
