Cloud Sync Clipboard
With Windows 10 version 1809 Microsoft introduced cloud powered clipboard experience. This feature leverages the cloud to copy and paste content across devices. The new clipboard will let users copy content from an app and paste to mobile devices like iPhones and Android.
The experience works just like before, using the Ctrl + C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste. However, now there’s a new experience that you can open using the Windows key + V keyboard shortcut that allows you to see your clipboard history. In addition, the experience includes a button to clear all your history or enable the feature if it’s currently disabled.
Also, you can optionally synchronize this clipboard history between your devices, giving you a clipboard that synchronizes itself between your PCs. You also can sync manually by clicking an icon in the clipboard popup, preventing Windows from synchronizing potentially sensitive data like passwords and credit card numbers.

Microsoft added dark theme support to the File Explorer context menus, including the context menu that appears when you right-click your desktop. Which as well as looking stylish should mean that you’ll be able to use your PC in a darkened room without quite as much eye strain.

Once you’ve taken a screenshot, the new Snip & Sketch tool lets you draw on it and add annotations, including arrows and highlights. You can press Windows+Shift+S to access the tool, However, there’s a setting under Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard that makes the new tool appear when you press the Print Screen key on your keyboard.
