Microsoft PowerToys is an open-source suite of utilities for Windows 10 power users to customize their Windows experience, inspired by the original Windows 95 project of the same name.

The latest v0.18.0 release brings two new utilities to the suite; PowerTools Run a modernized quick search launcher and Keyboard manager a new quick and easy tool to remap keys and shortcuts.The PowerTools Run launcher is designed to be fast and offer more features for power users without sacrificing on performance.

The code for the launcher is completely open-source so anyone can improve or develop modules for the launcher.

The launcher can be accessed via Alt+Space and will be updated over time to receive new features much like Apple's Spotlight search.
