Microsoft has released a patch update for PowerToys 0.60, which was released last week. As such, it contains all of the new features present in the previous release as well as a few fixes for bugs that the team deemed important to release patches for.
This is a patch release to fix issues in v0.60.0 to fix a few bugs we deemed important for stability based on incoming rates. See v0.60.0 for full release notes.
- #19253 - Updated the Microsoft Store submission of PowerToys to not show UI while installing.
- #19023 - Fixed a bug causing FancyZones to not apply templates correctly when more than one monitor shared the same serial number.
- #19233 - Fixed the incompatibility not allowing the PowerRename and ImageResizer Windows 11 tier 1 context menus being shown on development insider builds.
- #19219 - The old context menus are now shown on Windows 11 as well, to account for configurations where other third party software might be overriding the Windows 11 context menus.
- #19263 - Fixed a bug making the Find My Mouse overlay hang when activated in the top left corner of the screen.
- #19223 - The FancyZones Editor should no longer crash on configurations where monitors are not detected connected to display devices.
