Microsoft may be planning to release Windows 10X in the spring of 2021, but some of the new operating system’s features could be available earlier on Windows 10, including a new control panel that completely changes how copy and paste work.
As reported by Windows LatestIn Windows 10 Build 20185, the software giant added a new control panel that allows users to paste emojis, GIFs, and even content from their clipboards. The new control panel also includes several new features that make it easier for users to add content to their messages, documents, and emails.
In addition to being able to access your recently used emoji and GIFs and check for new ones, the control panel includes a feature called Clipboard History, which displays a list of items that users have recently copied to the clipboard.
While replacements for the clipboard are already available for Windows, the new control panel inherently offers similar functions and can even be synchronized across devices.
Windows 10 clipboard update
Using the clipboard in Windows 10, users can access their clipboard history at any time by pressing the Windows key and V. Clipboard items can also be shared across Windows 10 devices by going to the System Preferences and selecting the “Automatically sync the text I copy” option from the menu in the clipboard under the “Sync Across Devices” tab. However, the clipboard history currently stores a maximum of 25 entries, and the oldest items are deleted as new ones appear.
The new clipboard history for Windows 10 will soon support not only text, but also images and HTML content. Users can also clear the clipboard history or disable the feature entirely from the settings menu.
If you’ve used Google’s Gboard keyboard app before, the new control panel in Windows works similarly to GIFs and emojis, which you can access and paste into your messages or documents very quickly and easily.
The new panel is expected to be available with the next Windows 10 feature update. However, it is currently unknown when Microsoft will release it.
