PowerToys 0.67.0 is out with Quick access system tray launcher, and more


It is update time for those using PowerToys on Windows 10 and 11. Version 0.67.0 is now available for download with numerous fixes, improvements, and minor changes. The highlight of this release is the availability of the Quick access system tray launcher, which you can see in action below.
