Microsoft is Testing a Cloud Clipboard and Other Features in Windows 10

10 Mai 2018

Microsoft is now blocking some Intel SSDs from installing the April 2018 Update due to a known incompatibility that may cause performance and stability issues.

What will it cost?

As regular readers will be well aware, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update arrived just in the nick of time, a few hours before May arrived.

The Windows 10 April 2018 Update launched (just barely) in April, so we can be pretty confident about its follow up coming later in the year. If you're running Insider build 17666, turning on Windows 10's dark theme will enable it across all the apps and system UI that support it, including File Explorer. They were supposed to call back to see if the PC booted successfully into Windows 10, but never did.

Redstone 5 is expected to begin rolling out to mainstream users around October 2018.

If an attacker can't gain privileged access, they could exploit an elevation of privilege bug such as the other CVE being exploited in the wild: CVE-2018-8120, which features in older versions of Windows (Win7, Server 2008, Server 2008 R2). Let us know down in comments.

For many clipboards doesn't seem like an interesting feature beyond copying and pasting. These should make multi-tasking in Windows 10 better than ever. Sets not only adds tabbed windows to each individual app, it is a universal tab system that spans across all apps on your PC as well as the Web.

"In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is created to exploit the vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website", Microsoft notes in an advisory for the bug CVE-2018-8174. A new Bing tab will then open up, courtesy of Sets, to show you what you're looking for. At today's Build conference keynote, Microsoft announced that in "the next Insider build", - Microsoft's beta program for Windows - you'll see the tabs you were working on within Edge when you press Alt+Tab. The problem stems from the first cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1803, specifically the KB4103721 patch, that was slated to fix all issues related to the latest April 2018 Update feature upgrade.

This cloud clipboard will allow you to copy and paste across devices and keep a history of those actions. It is supposed to offer access to text messages, photos, and even notifications.

Microsoft also pointed out that "roamed text" in the new clipboard experience only supports content less than 100 kb at the time of writing.
