I wrote this post to share some of the great features available on Windows 10 version 1809 that I really liked.






Dark Mode in File Explorer


The option to enable the dark mode is available under Settings > Personalization > Colors .

It is possible switch between Light and Dark app mode.







After switching between the App modes, any App or Windows UI that support theme will be updated including File Explorer .




Notepad enhancements


You can zoom in to text now on Notepad by pressing CTRL + or CTRL -. That is pretty useful during presentations.







Finally wrap-around to find or replace is now available in Notepad too.







Notepad now allows you to search on Bing by selecting the text and pressing CTRL+E. That simplifies a lot the cases when you need to copy a test and search for it on Internet.





F5 in Notepad inserts the current date time.




The new clipboard


Pressing Windows Key + V you have access to the clipboard history. That is really cool and save a lot the time allowing us to get the copied content back from the historical clipboard.

You can also enable this functionality under Settings > System > Clipboard.







Observe that the clipboard also shows the images that were copied and gives you the option to pin the items to use all the time:







In addition to the clipboard history, it is also possible to copy the content across the devices that have at least Windows 10 version 1809 version.



The Windows + Shift + S, used to capture a screenshot, now displays a toast notification that open up the Snip & Sketch App:





If you click on the toast notification the Snip & Sketch App is opened:




Registry autocomplete


Windows 10 1809 comes with an autocomplete function for the registry editor. That saves a lot of time to navigate to the hives.



This was an introduction to the new functionalities of Windows 10 version 1809 version.



I hope you liked.
