The Windows 10 Mail app is getting new Fluent Design density elements

Microsoft's 'Your Phone' feature is possibly a BlackBerry Blend alternative

As regular readers will be well aware, the Windows 10 April 2018 Update arrived just in the nick of time, a few hours before May arrived.

Fluent Design, Microsoft's new design elements, also make an appearance.

The dark theme for Windows File Explorer matches the rest of Windows's dark user experience, although the version previewed in the Insider build isn't fully featured yet. You will be able to now pin the items from the clipboard along with being able to directly paste from the clipboard history.

This week we're introducing a set of features and updates across a variety of devices and platforms and a better blending between web and application environments for end users and developers. Microsoft has issued patches for Windows 7, 8.x, and 10, as well as in Windows Server.

Talking about the clipboards, Microsoft is adding cloud functionality to the Windows settings the path for which is Settings = System = Clipboard. Users also gain ability to mute specific Sets tabs, and snooze tabs in the background. Individual Sets tabs can be muted, like Edge, and you can specify whether you'd prefer new windows to open in the Sets tabbed environment, or within traditional windows. If you don't recall, Sets is Microsoft's way of adding tabs to full-fledged Windows apps; the idea is that you can group together different apps for a single project the way you group tabs in your browser windows.

But the main new feature in 17666 is the "new clipboard experience", which allows users to copy content across devices.

Karen Karapetyan resigns and congratulates new Armenian prime minister
However, after six days in power, he was ousted amid mass protests on April 23. Lawmakers voted 59 to 42 to approve Pashinian as prime minister.

After a ton of feedback, Microsoft states, a dark theme is finally making its way to Windows 10 and will initially be available on File Explorer, File Explorer context menu, and Common File Dialog menu. You can access the feature by selecting/ highlighting certain text.

As announced at Build 2018, Microsoft has added support for Unix/Linux line endings and Macintosh line endings to Notepad, meaning Notepad now supports CRLF, LF and CR. It advises there is "no workaround for this issue", and if you have faced this problem rolling back to Windows 10 version 1709 is recommended.

You may have noticed that the Cortana search box allows you to search for apps as well as documents.

With Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17666, Microsoft is bringing the ability to name tile folders.

One of the most critical flaws is a "use after free" vulnerability in the Windows VBScript engine that can be used to force Internet Explorer to load and to execute code.
