PowerToys 0.20 Released with New Features, Including a System Wide Color Picker
Microsoft has released PowerToys 0.20 with three new features and some quality improvements. Today's release also brings a new screen wide color picker utility. "Our goals for 0.20 release cycle were to focus on adding in a few new features along with a heavy focus on stability / quality fixes," Clint Rutkas of Microsoft writes. "Between 0.19 and 0.20 releases, we tracked down a lot of performance and memory issues with PowerToys Run as well. The most important ones got added to 0.19.1 and 0.19.2 releases."
