Dopo aver rilasciato la versione 0.49 dei PowerToys di Microsoft, release che ha portato il pieno supporto per Windows 11, l'azienda di Redmond ha reso disponibile un nuovo aggiornamento per il software che, oltre a correggere diversi bug e problemi, aggiunge una funzione interessante al pacchetto.

Arriva infatti un nuovo tool chiamato Mouse Highlighter: questo, a differenza del già presente Find My Mouse, serve appunto ad evidenziare il cursore del mouse con un cerchio giallo tutt'attorno quando si clicca il pulsante sinistro o destro. Questa funzione si rivela particolarmente utile durante le presentazioni, poiché rende ben visibile il cursore anche a distanza.

Tra i vari fix e novità che arrivano con questa versione, segnaliamo la correzione di un bug per cui non era possibile utilizzare Find My Mouse quando erano in uso più schermi e la possibilità di Image Resizer di rimuovere i metadati delle foto per ridurre la dimensione generale del file.

Di seguito trovate il changelog completo: l'aggiornamento alla versione 0.51 di PowerToys è già disponibile e può essere scaricato dal Microsoft Store o da questa pagina.
