Microsoft PowerToys will soon unveil a new feature called Screen Ruler. The PowerToys Github repository reveals the first details of the upcoming new feature that will allow users to measure pixels between objects on the screen.

The new Screen Ruler feature of Microsoft PowerToys will come with four new measurement modes, which will help users make their tasks easier. The four modes include crosshairs, horizontal or vertical distance to nearest object, and rectangular area. Users can switch modes using a small pop-up window at the top of the screen.
