Windows 10 958 Published by

Clint Rutkas has announced the release of PowerToys 0.37.0 for Windows 10.

PowerToys 0.37.0

Our goals for v0.37 release cycle Video Conference Mute work so we can bring it into the stable branch, general bug fixes, moving Keyboard manager out, and removing the legacy settings app.

Change log

  • PowerToys now requires Windows 10, version 1903 or higher
  • FancyZones editor default launching key is Win+Shift+`
    • Windows Terminal's new Quake mode will use Win+`. We feel this is a far better use of the keystroke.
    • Current PowerToys users can update this in our settings in the FancyZone section.
  • Removed our v1 HTML based settings system

New Spec - Feedback please!
