A new Insiders build of Windows 10 (labeled 17666) is beginning to roll out to those in the Fast ring, and Microsoft has noted quite a few changes users can expect to see after installing it. For starters, there’s a new cloud clipboard feature that stores what text users copy and allow them to access it on various devices, similar to how Timeline and the new Sets feature works. Microsoft says you can also pin items you need to access frequently and press WIN+V to access the clipboard.

Also arriving in the preview build are some additional hints of Microsoft’s Fluent Design System such as the acrylic title bar in Sets. Accessing recent Edge tabs via Alt + Tab, choosing whether to have new windows open as tabs instead, better performance for Sets, tweaks to the Settings app, new features for Notepad, and more are also included.


In the announcement blog post, Microsoft notes it’s also internally testing a dark mode for File Explorer. The mode will appear when you visitĀ Settings > Personalization > Colors and select the dark interface. In the preview Microsoft provided, File Explorer does look a lot sleeker than it does now. Hopefully, the feature gets added to a future Insider build very soon.

Additionally, Microsoft now lets you give folders you create in the Start menu a name.


While Fast ring Insiders are getting this preview today, standard Windows 10 users can expect them to hit their own PCs later this year. We’ll keep you updated on their status.
