Microsoft has released PowerToys version 0.19.2 this week which fixes more bugs affecting the collection of Windows 10 tools. The patch resolves a high CPU load issue and addresses additional problems affecting the PowerToys Run and FancyZones tools.

Here’s the full list of improvements and fixes in PowerToys version 0.19.2:

  • #4578 – WinKey for launcher throws a lot of false positives
  • #4521 – Improving performance of Adding and Removing Packaged Apps
  • #4694 – FancyZone Windows Snap Behind Top Mounted Windows Task Bar

Microsoft has acknowledged that PowerToys version 0.019.2 didn’t fix all previously reported bugs, and the recurring issue that has been preventing users from opening PowerToys Settings when it’s minimized in the taskbar still persists in this release. The software giant noted that the bug will be resolved in PowerToys version 0.20. In the meantime, if you want to get the latest stability improvements, head over to the GitHub releases page to download the recent version.
