Microsoft’s first PowerToys for Windows 10 now available to download

Microsoft announced earlier this year that PowerToys is coming back to Windows 10. PowerToys was a useful little utility to further customize Windows, and now we are releasing two new utilities for Windows 10 under the PowerToys brand. The first is the Windows Key Shortcuts Guide, which is a full screen overlay with dynamic shortcuts for each active window or app. You can use this utility to find keyboard shortcuts while holding down the Windows key, and it's useful if you're not familiar with most built-in Windows shortcut keys, or if you're looking for a faster way to do things in a particular app.

The second utility is the FancyZones window manager and you must check this feature to run multiple apps side by side. You can set a custom area, and then drag and drop the app into these layouts to automatically resize it. This is useful if you want to further customize desktop and window management in Windows 10. Microsoft has created a five-minute tutorial video that walks you through the various ways you can use FancyZones. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work properly with multiple monitor settings at this time.

Windows fans were happy to see PowerToys return earlier this year, and these two utilities represent the first release of this effort on Windows 10. Microsoft is offering these open source on GitHub and there will be more in the future. Microsoft now embraces this passion for PowerToys to help communities deliver and build powerful Windows 10 utilities. The developer platform team at Microsoft said, “When the PowerToys project was first announced this spring, we didn't think the reception was enthusiastic. "With this enthusiasm, many developers are looking forward to contributing to PowerToys, and have made sure that the documentation, project architecture and tools are ready to jump into the community."

FancyZones is available for download. GitHub provides a Windows Key Shortcut Guide utility as part of the new PowerToys project.
