It’s been a couple of days since Microsoft released a major update for PowerToys (version 0.20), but the company has already rolled out a maintenance update. Indeed, PowerToys v0.20.1, which was released earlier this week, delivers a couple of critical fixes to improve the overall stability of the app.
We just released #powerToys 0.20.1 which fixed a few critical bugs. One bug caused a cascade of other bugs to be found. This also has a fix for the installer. https://t.co/VfK1bbhgVg

“This is patch release to fix a few items for 0.20 we deemed important for stability. The installer, PowerToys Run, FancyZones and ColorPicker. FancyZones had a bug in it which then crashed our hosting app (we refer to as Runner), then that caused us to find a few bugs in PowerToys Run that happen when Runner crashes,” said Clint Rutkas, Program manager lead on PowerToys.
Here’s the full list of improvements and fixes in PowerToys version 0.20.1:
