  • #32971 - Fixed Advanced Paste was being triggered by some external software when some of the hotkeys were not set. Slack's tray icon was the most common example in the issues that were opened.
  • #32947 - Added a GPO rule for Advanced Paste to disable AI online models usage and prevent users from entering the API key.
  • #33006 - Improved descriptions on Advanced Paste Settings and OOBE pages to clarify that usage of AI is opt-in and that it can be used without AI.
  • #32945 - Fixed the Advanced Paste settings page UX showing that it could enable/disable clipboard history when that feature is not allowed by GPO.
  • #30206 - Fixed PowerToys Run showing the accent color on the title bar when that option is turned on in Windows Settings.
