Microsoft PowerToys Experimental 0.48.1 for Windows 10 and Windows 11

This experimental release contains our Video conference mute feature plus everything in our v0.47.1 release. We know we have some issues and we have a main tracking issue – #6246.This version includes the following updates:

  • Fixed an issue with the first hotkey input in the settings being focused when the page loads. Prevents unintentional shortcut reassignment. Thanks @niels9001!

Current known issues and limitations:

  • With some webcams, there is an incompatibility with Teams and the overlay image is not rendered, instead a corrupted frame is shown. If your camera has this quirk, please let us know the model in the [main tracking issue – #6246]
  • The application preview (Teams, Meet, etc.) may show the overlay image flipped horizontally but that is expected, the image will show correctly to the other people on the call.
  • In order to enable/disable the VCM, PowerToys should run as administrator
  • Changes to some of the VCM settings require the application to restart to pick up the new values such as a new overlay image.
  • In some cases, the overlay image can be shown flipped vertically (the workaround is to edit the image and flip it before selecting it).
  • If the PowerToys Video Conference Mute webcam doesn\’t show up in the video conference app, try restarting the app and if still doesn\’t show up try restarting Windows.

Things to note

  • This release will not be on WinGet. We are evaluating if this is something people would be interested in.
  • This release is on the "Experimental" train, so only prerelease versions will be prompted for updates.
