When Microsoft first unveiled Windows 10X at its Surface event last October, Microsoft positioned the operating system as software designed for dual-screen devices, such as its own Surface Neo. Recently, Microsoft said it plans to change its plans, with Windows 10X the first to land on a single-screen laptop. Microsoft then decided to gradually add some Windows 10X features to Windows 10, and now some of the key features of this modular operating system are on their way.
With the release of Windows 10 Build 20185, Microsoft has added a new clipboard panel that can insert emojis, GIFs, and even clipboard content. The new emoji or clipboard panel has several new features that have been redesigned to provide a better experience.
The new emoji panel on Windows 10 lets users access recently used emojis and GIFs, as well as launch a search to find the emoticons they need faster. The Emoji Panel also integrates a feature called Clipboard History, which lets you see a list of items recently copied to the clipboard.
This new clipboard history supports text, pictures, HTML content, syncs on different devices, removes clipboard history from settings, or turns it off.
Currently, the clipboard history stores up to 25 entries, and the oldest items disappear with the advent of new projects. The emoji panel is expected to arrive with the next feature update.
In addition to the Emoji panel, the news says Windows 10 is also expected to gain a new action center, with a focus on productivity and modularity. It’s not clear when these features will be available on Windows 10.
