The Windows clipboard has been around for years and hasn’t seen much improvement—until now. With the new Windows 10 October 2018 Update, Microsoft introduced several impressive features. One standout, though, is the new and improved Windows clipboard, which adds new skills and abilities to help you cut, copy, and paste items.
You can now store a running history of items that you’ve cut or copied. By triggering the right keyboard shortcut, you can view and access your clipboard history to paste any entry one after the other. You can also sync your clipboard history through the cloud so it’s available on any of your Windows 10 devices. Meaning you can copy something out of a document on your Dell Precision 5530 and paste it into an email on your Microsoft Surface Book 2.
The new feature allows you a lot more freedom and is a lot more forgiving than the previous version. Let’s see how you can use the new clipboard.
