Microsoft has released a new update for the PowerToys app on Windows 11 and 10. The latest version of PowerToys is 0.67.0, but apart from a unique version number, it brings a couple of useful new functionalities. PowerToys 0.67.0 is now being rolled out to everyone.
One of the most exciting features in this update is the ability to launch PowerToys apps from the Windows 11 system tray. Thanks to the new quick launch flyout, you can launch your favorite PowerToys utilities with a few clicks. Apart from that, an option for PowerToys Run to tab through results instead of context buttons has been added in this release. Another change that Microsoft highlighted was that the PowerToys registry entries are moved from machine scope (HKLM) to user scope (HKCU).
