Microsoft Releases Build 21318 for the Dev Channel

Microsoft has announced the launch of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21318, a new compilation that comes to the Dev channel, including ARM64 devices, which we can now download. This new update introduces a new application, Microsoft Garage Journal, and a new way to paste text from the clipboard history. Of course we have a wide variety of bug fixes and solutions as we can see in their list of news.

What’s New in Build 21318

Paste as plain text to clipboard history

Just open the clipboard history (WIN + V) and click the… button next to any text-based entry in the clipboard history; you will now see the option “Paste as plain text” along with pinning and deleting. When you use this action in the clipboard history, you paste the text content from the clipboard without its original format (font, color, size, etc.), allowing it to match the format of the target document.

Microsoft Releases Build 21318 for the Dev Channel

This feature is being rolled out to a subset of Insiders in the development pipeline, to help quickly identify issues that can affect performance and reliability. It will be rolled out gradually for everyone in the development channel.

Other updates for Insiders

Journal, a Microsoft Garage project

Earlier this week, they announced Journal, a Microsoft Garage project. Journal is a Windows application that invites people who like to write a journal to grab their digital pen, express themselves quickly and develop their ideas.

Journal is a Windows application that invites people who love to write a journal to grab their digital pen, express themselves quickly, and develop their ideas.

Of all the different methods of device interaction, digital ink is unique in the speed and degree of natural expression and in assisting memory. With Journal, disparate ideas can be connected, drawings can be sketched, annotations can be freely inserted, information can be located with search, and your ink can easily be connected to other applications to develop your best ideas.

Journal provides a first-rate solution that offers new artificial intelligence, intuitive gestures, and connected experiences for Microsoft 365 for work and school (subscription required, sold separately). It is designed for people who thrive on writing their ideas, notes, and sketches.

If you want to try it, you can try installing the application from the Microsoft Store.

Changes and improvements

Insiders using x64 apps on ARM64 will no longer need to download and install a separate preview version of the ARM64 C ++ redistributable package. They are making a change so that the notification when pairing compatible Bluetooth devices now stays on the screen for a bit longer, which gives you a chance to interact with him before he disappears. If you want to dismiss it before then, you can still do so at any time by clicking the X in the notification, clicking the middle of the notification, or swiping the notification off the screen. Touch keyboard enhancements as mentioned in the Build 21301, such as updates to the default keyboard layout on 12 ”or larger screens and the Candidate Bar are now rolling out for all Insiders in the dev channel. They have improved the smoothness of movement while using the Magnifier , for the scenario where you are switching between mouse and keyboard focus.
