Microsoft has released PowerToys 0.19 in a huge bug fix that aims to increase performance and stability in the tools.

For those not familiar with Windows PowerToys, they are a set of small freeware utilities created by Windows developers to add extra functionality to Windows 10 or solve everyday tasks

With the PowerToys 0.19 release, Microsoft did not release any new tools or features but instead focused on fixing over 100 issues to improve stability and performance.

"Our goals for the 0.19 release cycle had one big goal, add instability/quality fixes. We've addressed over 100 issues across all our utilities. We've improved our installer experience and parts will start coming online in 0.19 and 0.20. In this release, it will be the last time during the upgrade you'll see Windows Explorer flash on you. For 0.20, the .NET Core install experience much smoother," Microsoft stated in the 0.19 release notes.

The bulk of the issues fixed were in the PowerToys Run app, which can now correctly detect Steam games, hidden files, and Terminal.

PowerToys Run app

The current list of PowerToys available for download are:

FancyZones: A window manager that makes it easy to create complex window layouts and quickly position windows into those layouts.

File Explorer (Preview Panes): Adds a preview pane to File Explorer that supports SVG  and Markdown.

Image Resizer: Adds a context-menu image resize.

Keyboard Manager: Lets you remap keys and create customized keyboard shortcuts.

PowerRename: An advanced bulk renaming using search and replace or regular expressions.

PowerToys Run: A Spotlight-like tool that allows you to easily search for files and applications or compute basic math problems.

Shortcut Guide: Shows an overlay containing the current keyboard shortcuts.

To get started with Microsoft's Windows 10 PowerToys 0.19.0, you have to download the installer from GitHub, install them on your Windows computer, and then access them via the PowerToys system tray icon.
