Microsoft powertoys for windows 10

Microsoft today announced the release of PowerToys v0.19. This is a minor update with no new features. But this update comes with several (over 100 issues) bug fixes and improved installer experience.

For 0.19 release, our massive push is stabilizing our code base. Releasing new items into the wild, we will encounter bugs that didn’t happen during testing. It also allows us to reevaluate decisions made earlier in the process.
