Cloud Clipboard Spotted in Windows 10 Insider Skip Ahead Builds


The cloud-powered clipboard is one of the features showcased at Build 2017 conference. While it won’t be ready for the upcoming Fall Creators Update, it’s spotted in Windows Insider Skip Ahead builds, hoping it’s a good sign that this cool feature will be baked fully in the next major Windows 10 update for next year.

Rafael Rivera, the technical contributor at Thurrott, shared some interesting details about the feature on the hands-on post. Even though the feature is not fully wired up in build 17004, Rafael managed to get a peek at how it works.

Similar to the Emoji panel on Windows 10, you need to use a keyboard shortcut which is Win + V in this case to engage the clipboard management UI. Once engaged, a popup appears next to the cursor with a list of items presently residing in your cloud clipboard sorted by copy time in descending order, like below.

There is also a new clipboard button for easy one-tap access as well for those who use the touch keyboard, including Swiftkey keyboard (seems).

Obviously, we will wait and see how it works when the feature is more completed in the future builds.
