Windows 10 to Let You Alt+Tab Between Browser Tabs and Apps

May Patch Tuesday Fixes Two Bugs Under Active Attack

Microsoft resolves zero-day exploits on May Patch Tuesday

Now that Microsoft has shipped the April 2018 Update for Windows 10, it's moving full speed ahead to the next version of Windows, Redstone 5, due this fall.

Microsoft will be adding something new, a command bar flyout that basically will show you inline tools and options, making the access efficient while also saving the space at the top where such options are now present.

Back in 2017, Microsoft added some Fluent Design elements to Windows 10 which mainly included Perspective parallax, Conscious controls, Connected animations, and few more. 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. You will be able to now pin the items from the clipboard along with being able to directly paste from the clipboard history.


Windows 10 will receive a "future" update to address the issue, at which point users with Intel SSDs can migrate to the April 2018 update.

Last month, Microsoft warned that that it would no longer be supporting Windows 10 version 1607, aka the "Anniversary Update", which was first introduced in August 2016, or older versions of the OS.

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 a year ago and has seen little public engineering attention beyond a skeletal prototype offering in an Insider build last October.


The Redmond giant has also added a Task Manager to the list of apps in Sets, and fixed an issue with right-clicking a tab in the Sets title bar.

But the main new feature in 17666 is the "new clipboard experience", which allows users to copy content across devices. 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. Users also gain ability to mute specific Sets tabs, and snooze tabs in the background.

If you want to start using the new Dark Theme in File Explorer, make sure you are using the latest Windows Insider build, and then go into Settings, then Personalization, and finally Colors. But it's not just Linux: Macintosh line endings (CR) have been added as well.


Windows 10's default note-taking app, Notepad, is getting new search on Bing functionality. The option to name the folder will be shown when you expand the folder that has several tiles in it.
