We have gotten a report from one of our sources that says that Microsoft is testing a new build of Window 10 (17666) that includes a few other features that will be available later in the year. The biggest addition to this new update is a cloud-powered clipboard that will let Windows 10 users roam the content of their clipboard across devices and at the end to Android and iOS devices. The cloud clipboard further includes a history of what has been copied, it will sync in the same way Sets and Timeline do, so you can copy from one PC and paste on another one.
In addition to the cloud clipboard, Microsoft is also bringing a dark theme to File Explorer that will match the rest of the Windows 10 dark user interface. However, the new build doesn’t have a full version of the theme at the moment, but, Microsoft is previewing how it will look in Windows 10 ultimately. Microsoft is still making some minor changes to Notepad, allowing developers to use Unix / Linus line endings (LF) and Macintosh line endings (CR) in the app. You can also highlight words in Notepad and use a keyboard shortcut or context menu item to search Bing for the word.
The tech giant is also making changes that are difficult to detect to Fluent Design in this most recent test version of Windows 10. Sets at the moment have an acrylic title bar, and the Alt-Tab experience now includes recent Microsoft Edge tabs to switch between. If you desire to do so, can disable this new Alt-Tab change in multitasking settings and this elusive enhancement gets together with the new screenshot tool for Windows 10. The new Windows 10 build 17666 is available to Fast Insiders tout de suite and the features should be available to users of Windows 10 later in the year.
