Windows 10 Redstone 5 cloud Clipboard

The Cloud Clipboard prototype was described about seven months ago by Rafael Rivera. A couple of days ago he tweeted about it once more, writing “BREAKSCLUSIVE: Cloud Clipboard is on track to landing in next WIP Fast build.”

Windows Insiders from the Fast ring and the Skip Ahead ring have a reason to celebrate. Microsoft’s latest Insider build, Windows 10 Build 17666 (RS5) brings the highly anticipated Cloud Clipboard feature. This is excellent news because everyone was waiting for it since its preview last year at Build 2017.

Why is this helpful?

There’s a strong reason for which this feature was much awaited. The new Clipboard experience will turn out to be the handiest especially when users often paste the same content more times during a day. It’s also extremely useful when users want to paste something across more devices. All you need to do in order to access this heavenly experience which helps you save time is use WIN+V keyboard shortcut.

Access recent clipboard contents from the clipboard history

This feature allows users to gain access to recent clipboard contents from the clipboard history. You’ll also get the opportunity to pin the items that you believe will be needed later and this way you’ll have access to them all the time.

Just like Timeline, you can access your clipboard across any PC that has this Windows build installed on it or of course higher versions.

The tech giant also stated that roamed text on the clipboard would only be supported for clipboard content which is under 100kb. The clipboard history supports HTML, images and plain text under 1MB. You will be able to enable and disable this feature via the new Settings page.
