PowerToys for Windows 10 is a collection of tools built by Microsoft that enhances the Windows 10 experience for power users. If you've ever wanted to remap certain keys on your keyboard, or create specific app window layouts on your desktop, PowerToys is for you. It's still in development, but new features and enhancements are being added all the time.
We've gone hands-on with the latest preview build, which has seven features built in for users to take advantage of. In our video, we take a brief look at all the features, including FancyZones, Image Resizer, and PowerToys Run. Here's a full list of features:
- PowerToys Run
- Image Resizer
- File Explorer Add-Ons
- Keyboard Manager
- Shortcut Overview
FancyZones and PowerToys Run are two of my favorite features, the first of which lets you create specific workspace layouts for open app windows. PowerToys Run is an alternative to Windows Search, and is a fast and straightforward search UI for installed and running programs, as well as files on your PC.
You can download and install PowerToys today for free from Github. The program is updated all the time with new features, too. If you'd like to get started with PowerToys, make sure to check out our guides.
