The setting is useful when you are wishing to paste something that is pasted before and for the settings you need to hit WIN+V, as opposed to CTRL+V, you'll be able to paste from the clipboard history.

At its Build developer conference yesterday, Microsoft showcased what's coming for its Fluent Design overhaul of Windows and its applications, and there's definitely a lot of good news for people who like Fluent Design, developers, and yes, even power users.

Today's build also allows users to choose a dark theme for File Explorer, the File Explorer context menu and the Common File Dialog (the Open and Save dialogs). You can get it by going to Settings Update & Security Windows Update Check for Updates.

Last month, Microsoft warned that that it would no longer be supporting Windows 10 version 1607, aka the "Anniversary Update", which was first introduced in August 2016, or older versions of the OS.

Microsoft is finally debuting its anticipated cloud clipboard technology as part of the latest Windows 10 "Redstone 5" test build. However, there is no clarity on whether this feature applies to the browser tabs within a specific Set only, or if it will include all tabs in the browser.

Windows 10's default note-taking app, Notepad, is getting new search on Bing functionality. Those who don't require synchronization can turn it off, and if you don't require the storing of multiple items, then you can disable the feature as well.

Microsoft at its Build 2018 announced support of extended line endings for Notepad, this support has now been added with Notepad now supporting Unix/Linux line endings and Macintosh line ending.

"Despite a Word document being the initial attack vector, the vulnerability is actually in VBScript, not in Microsoft Word", Kaspersky Lab researchers say. It advises there is "no workaround for this issue", and if you have faced this problem rolling back to Windows 10 version 1709 is recommended.

"We expect this vulnerability to become one of the most exploited in the near future, as it won't be long until exploit kit authors start abusing it in both drive-by via browser and spear-phishing via document campaigns".

In addition to all this, there is an option to name the title folders.
