From HowToGeek.com re the October 2018 Windows 10 update:
Notepad Supports Linux and Mac Line Endings
Notepad finally supports UNIX-style end of line (EOL) characters
. Specifically, Notepad now supports UNIX/Linux line endings (LF) and Mac line endings (CR.) This means you can take a text file created on Linux or Mac and open it in Notepad—and it will actually look like it’s supposed to! Previously, the file would look all jumbled up, instead.
You can even edit the file in Notepad and save it, and Notepad will automatically use the appropriate line endings the file originally had. Notepad will still create files with the Windows line ending (CRLF) by default. The status bar shows which type of line endings are used for the current file if you enable it by clicking View>Status Bar.
Copy and Paste Keyboard Shortcuts for Bash
The Windows Subsystem for Linux runs Bash and other command-line Linux shell environments
based on Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, and Debian
on Windows. If you use Bash on Windows, you’re getting a feature many people have been asking for: keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste.
You can now right-click a console window’s title bar and select “Properties” to find an option that enables Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V for copy and paste
. These keyboard shortcuts are disabled by default for compatibility reasons.
These keyboard shortcuts are available in all console environments, but they’re particularly useful in Linux-based shell environments where the Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V
shortcuts are mapped to other functions and don’t function like copy and paste.
Launch a Linux Shell From File Explorer
You can now directly launch a Linux shell in a specific folder from File Explorer. To do so, hold down the Shift key
, and then right-click a folder inside File Explorer. You’ll see an “Open Linux shell here” option next to the standard “Open PowerShell window here” option.
