Microsoft has released an update for PowerToys upping it to version 0.67.0. It features a couple of improvements as well as the usual fixes. Here’s everything you need to know about this release:

First up, the most notable addition is the Quick access system tray launcher which Microsoft has been working on since late last year. Just like Windows 11’s Quick Settings launcher, this new feature will let users access utilities within the app easily.

Other improvements include the addition of a new option for PowerToys Run to tab through results instead of context buttons. What’s more, all PowerToys registry entries have been moved from machine scope (HKLM) to user scope (HKCU). Be sure to check out the full changelog over at GitHub for more details on the changes made as well as fixes.

If you already have PowerToys running on your device, it should automatically notify you of this update. Alternatively, you can get this update today by launching your app, then clicking on General followed by the Check for Updates, and then the Install Now button.
