Power Toys for Windows 10

Remember PowerToys from older versions of Windows? Microsoft is bringing them back for Windows 10.
PowerToys was a set of utilities that added several useful tools to Windows from Windows 95 to XP. TweakUI, ClearType Tuner, SyncToy, Image Resizer and Taskbar Magnifier were some of the tools in PowerToys.
Fast forward to Windows 10. Microsoft has been working on bringing a set of PowerToys to Windows 10. They’ve been creating and adding them a few at a time, and the newest release is worth taking a look at. Two things make this release attractive - PowerToys is now self-updating, new tools are added automatically so you don’t have to visit the GitHub repository for new additions, and the File Explorer in the Preview Pane allows Markdown files (.md) and SVG (.svg) files to show in the preview. PowerToys are now in one file, you no longer have to download them separately.
Here’s the list of current set of PowerToys utilities according to Microsoft, links to go to the tool description, download link for all tools at the end of the article:

FancyZones
FancyZones is a window manager that makes it easy to create complex window layouts and quickly position windows into those layouts. Download link at the end of the article.

Shortcut Guide
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. Download link at the end of the article.

PowerRename
PowerRename - PowerRename is a Windows Shell Extension for advanced bulk renaming using search and replace or regular expressions. PowerRename allows simple search and replace or more advanced regular expression matching. While you type in the search and replace input fields, the preview area will show what the items will be renamed to. PowerRename then calls into the Windows Explorer file operations engine to perform the rename. This has the benefit of allowing the rename operation to be undone after PowerRename exits. Download link at the end of the article.

File Explorer (Preview Panes)
File Explorer add-ons right now are just limited to Preview Pane additions for File Explorer. Preview Pane is an existing feature in the File Explorer. To enable it, you just click the View tab in the ribbon and then click "Preview Pane". Download link at the end of the article.
PowerToys will now enable two types of files to be previewed:
Markdown files (.md)
SVG (.svg)

Image Resizer
Image Resizer is a Windows Shell Extension for quickly resizing images. With a simple right click from File Explorer, resize one or many images instantly. Download link at the end of the article.

Window Walker (Text based alt-tab alternative)
Window Walker is an app that lets you search and switch between windows that you have opened, all from the comfort of your keyboard. As you are searching for
an app, you can use the keyboard up and down arrows to see an Alt-Tab style preview of the windows. In the future, this will be merged into the Launcher project. Download link at the end of the article.
PowerToys currently supports x64, x86 and ARM processors and the file is free of malware according to VirusTotal. Read More
