Microsoft announced its PowerToys will be making an open-source comeback! First introduced during the Windows 95 era, these freeware tools for power users were abandoned after Windows XP. The new set of PowerToys will be published on GitHub and are expected to be released this summer.
At the moment, Microsoft programmers are developing two PowerToys:
Maximize to new desktop widget - The MTND widget shows a pop-up button when a user hovers over the maximize / restore button on any window. Clicking it creates a new desktop, sends the app to that desktop and maximizes the app on the new desktop.
Windows key shortcut guide - The shortcut guide appears when a user holds the Windows key down for more than one second and shows the available shortcuts for the current state of the desktop.
