Another major update for Windows 10 is going to be released in October. The following details might change in minor respects before the release date but this is some of what is expected.
There will be a 'Clipboard history' feature. For those who aren't aware what the Clipboard is, it's a temporary place in the computer's memory created when images/text etc. are copy/pasted. When the 'Copy' option is clicked, the Clipboard is where the item is stored before being pasted into wherever it is needed.
Anything copied to the Clipboard disappears as soon as the next item is copied to it, or when the computer is switched off. In the new version of W.10, all things copied to the Clipboard will be remembered. Quite handy if anyone needs to paste the same item(s) repeatedly. The Clipboard history is stored on Microsoft's servers. This is so that the history of items copied to the Clipboard can be made available on any of your other devices as well.
The new Clipboard feature is an option that can be turned on or off. The stored Clipboard history can be cleared at any time. This function is nothing really new however. Third-party Clipboard programs have been available that will do this for as long as I've been running a computer. It's just that Microsoft are now introducing their own version of it integrated into the OS.
The Clipboard application has an option to stop passwords or other text from automatically being remembered and synchronised across the devices that you own. Personally, I think the new function could be useful but I wouldn't want any details remembered that are anything to do with passwords or other important details that I might copy/paste.
Other changes are on the way too. Notepad is being updated with text that can be zoomed with the mouse wheel. Notepad has perhaps always been a bit basic and there are third-party replacements that are better (Notepad++ for instance). I wonder if the new version will include a spell-checker? Write-ups don't say that it will but you never know.
There's also going to be a dark theme for File Explorer.
