Earlier in the year, Microsoft announced that it was going to reboot PowerToys for Windows 10 in open source form and followed through with the first preview release of the utility suite a couple of months ago. Up until today, PowerToys 0.12 was the most recent build available which included the new PowerRename and FancyZones features plus support for dark mode.
Now, the company has bumped PowerToys up to v0.13.0 which addresses a range of issues with PowerRename and the Shortcut Guide, which include:
- Fixed crashing bug
- Fixed duplicate entries for PowerRename in context menu for shortcuts
- PowerRename dialog is no longer appearing in top corner all the time
- Ensure we show the file extension in the UI even if extensions are hidden in Windows Explorer
- Fixed conflicting key with Xbox controller
- Hide Shortcut Guide when a screenshot is taken
If you’ve encountered any of the above issues then you may wish to download the PowerToys v0.13.0 installer from GitHub here.
