Microsoft has released a patch update for PowerToys 0.62, which was released just over a week ago. A patch was deemed important enough to release an update and it contains all of the features present in the previous release as well as a couple of bug fixes listed below.

This is a patch release to fix issues in v0.62.0 to fix a few bugs we deemed important for stability based on incoming rates. See v0.62.0 for full release notes.


  • #20297 - Fixed an issue causing a bug report to not be generated for some users, due to trying to include logs from a folder that might not exist yet.
  • #20367 - Fixed an issue that made Quick Accent cause Keyboard Manager to not work correctly.
  • #20430, #20450 and #20532 - Added more resilient exit code for background C# processes which were causing crashes being reported when upgrading PowerToys or the .NET runtimes.
