Microsoft has released PowerToys update v0.20 with a few new features along with a heavy focus on stability / quality fixes.
The three new and important features include Shortcut to key/key to shortcut for KBM remapping, a system wide Color picker, and SVG File explorer icon rendering.

- PT Run – keyboard interaction improvements
