Microsoft pushes out yet another PowerToys update with important fixes and changes
As if the arrival of an entirely new utility was not enough, Microsoft developers have now released yet another build of PowerToys.
In addition to making important changes to the new Awake tool, PowerToys v0.41.4 is the third release from the PowerToys team in less than a week. It also addresses a number of other key problems and includes a handful of changes.
- Microsoft releases KB5004760 update to fix PDF problems in Windows 10
- Security researchers accidentally leak PrintNightmare remote execution vulnerability in Windows print spooler
- Check whether your computer can be upgraded to Windows 11 using Win11SysCheck
The new keep-awake tool was well received, but it was found to be something of a resource hog that caused high CPU usage. The latest build of PowerToys addresses this problem. The update also fixes a couple of problems with PowerToys run, as well as various other issues.
Here's the full list of changes from this latest build of PowerToys:
- #11898 - PowerToys Run crashing when selecting search results
- #11912 - Awake has high CPU usage
- #11955 - PowerToys Run error on Windows Startup
- #11964 - Add "PowerToys" to Awake in systray
- #12031 - FancyZones unable to start correctly
- #12044 - Image resizes to 1x1
You can download PowerToys v0.41.4 from GitHub, or by checking for updates from within the version of the app you have installed at the moment.
