Release v0.20.1 
crutkas released this 26 days ago 
This is patch release to fix a few items for 0.20 we deemed important for stability. The Installer, PowerToys Run, FancyZones and 
ColorPicker. 
Fancy Zones had a bug in it which then crashed our hosting app (we refer to as Runner), then that caused us to find a few bugs in 
PowerToys Run that happen when Runner crashes. 
If continue to see issues, please make us aware. 
This release will fix the following issues: 
• #5400 - PT Run doesn't dispose properly and disposed object trying to be accessed 
• #5555 - ColorPicker trying to always reload a bad settings file 
• #5540 - Fancy Zones tries to drag an elevated window 
. #5484 - Installer gets stuck installing .NET Core 
0.20.0 full change log 
For more details on the 0.20 full update, please look at those release notes.
