The latest Windows 10 update for Windows Insiders adds a new copy-paste feature

 

What's new in Windows 10 Insiders Preview Build 21318?

The cloud-powered clipboard functionality was first added to Windows 10 with build 17666 released to the Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring (now known as "Dev Channel"). This allowed users to sync the clipboard history across devices. The clipboard sync functionality later gone thru several changes. Now, with Windows 10 build 21318, Microsoft improved it further and provided you the functionality to paste formatted content as "Plain Text".

 

Windows 10, by default, allows you to paste the formatted text with the CTRL + V keyboard shortcut. So, when you copy any content from a web page or any other app to any advanced text editor, it includes the original formatting of the copied text.

 

Now, with the new feature, you can paste it as plain text. To use the feature, open the clipboard history page by pressing the WIN + V keyboard shortcut. Then click on the "Paste as Text" button present alongside the Pin and Delete buttons.

 

The feature is currently rolling out to a subset of the Windows Insiders who are in the Dev Channel. Microsoft said that it will be gradually rolled out to everyone in the Dev Channel.
