Now another function will be introduced soon, called PowerOCR. It has been in development for a long time and is currently being tested. To put it simply: PowerOCR reads text from images so you can continue to use them. How can you imagine it? Very simple, look at the GIF at the top of this paragraph. Once the new functionality is permanently installed in PowerToys, we will tell you here again.
