The long-waiting Cloud Clipboard finally arrived on Windows 10 Insider Build 17666, along with a new clipboard settings page. The first appearance comes with two new features that have been long over-due for quite some time, Clipboard Sync and Clipboard History.
To enable Clipboard History feature, go to Settings > System > Clipboard and turn on the switch under Save multiple items section.
To use it, simply press Win + V keyboard shortcut assigned to bring up Clipboard history board to choose text to paste.
To start using Clipboard Sync, you will first need to sign in with your Microsoft Account. Then go to Settings > System > Clipboard, and click Get Start button. After authenticated, the Sync feature gets turned on with “Automatically sync text that I copy” option checked.
On the other computer you have signed in with the same Microsoft Account, you can simply turn the Clipboard Sync feature on or off when needed. From now on, every text you copy on one computer, it will get synced over automatically to all other computers you have the “Clipboard Sync” turned on.
Note that, only text will be synced across multiple devices at the moment. But still, it’s a big step in the right direction and I can’t wait to use them and look forward to the new features that get added in the future releases.
