The post Patch for April 2018 Update sends Windows 10 into infinite boot loop appeared first on Digital Trends. Users will now be able to press WIN + V to be able to enjoy a new clipboard experience. Additionally, the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17666 (RS5) has been unveiled with numerous new feature additions.

This new Clipboard feature, informally named "Cloud Clipboard", does require a Microsoft account, as well as your permission to save the data within Microsoft. The setting will also help to pin the items you find yourself pasting a couple of times.

If you think about it, using a PC is kind of like working in two operating systems: Windows and your browser.


After the "Your Phone" presentation, some developers and consumers wanted to know the status of the similar functioning Cloud Clipboard feature, especially since it was announced during Build past year and has seen little public engineering attention beyond a skeletal prototype offering in an Insider build last October. Notable critical flaws affect Microsoft's browser scripting engine, its Hyper-V virtualization framework, Internet Explorer, and a Windows 10 security feature bypass revealed in April by Google's Project Zero. Individual Sets tabs can be muted, like Edge, and you can specify whether you'd prefer new windows to open in the Sets tabbed environment, or within traditional windows. But within Sets' tabbed UI, everything-a webpage, an app, a document-gets its own tab.

Secondly, Microsoft has not explained whether Alt-Tabbing between apps and browser tabs will work on a system-wide basis, or whether it will only allow for navigation between tabs that have been added to a particular set.

Aside from one time copy and paste operations, you can explore this new cloud clipboard to pin things you seem to always use and see your history in a similar way to Windows 10 Timeline.


Windows 10's default note-taking app, Notepad, is getting new search on Bing functionality. The feature can be accessed in three different ways: through the right-click (context) menu, the Edit menu, and by clicking CTRL + B. Notepad now also supports Unix/Linux/Mac line endings, as teased earlier this week.

"Despite a Word document being the initial attack vector, the vulnerability is actually in VBScript, not in Microsoft Word", Kaspersky Lab researchers say. It exists in Windows 7, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016.

"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".
