This feature was born first for Windows 10X. In May, it became known that Microsoft was going to port some functions of this new operating system to normal Windows 10, and in the last Build 20185 Windows 10 we can see one of them.
This is the new menu that joins the emojis and the clipboard
To begin with, the company has added a new panel that will allow us to insert emojis, GIFs and content that we have on the clipboard, having completely redesigned this interface. Thus, this new panel collects some functions that we can find in mobile keyboards, such as emojis or GIFs used recently.
From that menu, in addition to being able search for emojis, GIFs, kaomojis, or special symbolsWe can also find content that we have on the clipboard to see what we have recently copied, integrating everything in the same menu so that it is more accessible. The menu is accessible using the same Windows 10 shortcut using the Windows +. currently used.
The history of things that we have copied with the clipboard will also now accept more content, including text, images and HTML content, in addition to being able to synchronize between devices. We can delete the clipboard history, in addition to deactivating the function if we want. Currently, the clipboard supports up to 25 entries, where the oldest elements disappear as we copy the most recent ones.
Other rumors about new features for Windows 10 coming from Windows 10X they include instant system updates, which would install much faster and even without a reboot. Some of the functions that we can already enjoy on our computers from Windows 10X include new icons in Windows apps.
New bug in Windows 10 password manager
Windows 10 has also been affected by a bug in May 2020 Update that makes the operating system forget passwords stored in web browsers, VPN services, and other system applications. Specifically, the affected element of the system is the Windows Credential Manager, which is responsible for managing the credentials as if it were a native password manager.
Affected programs include Chrome, Edge, Outlook, OneDrive, and Adobe Acrobat, where the latter asks for the password every time you want to open a PDF. In some VPNs, any password can be entered, and even if it is not the correct one, the login process does complete correctly.
The solution to this uncomfortable problem, in the absence of Microsoft solving it, is to go to “Your account information” in the Settings> Accounts menu, click “Sign in with a local account instead”, restart the PC, and then go to this section to click “Sign in with a Microsoft account instead.”
