The critical vulnerability in the Windows VBScript Engine, which affects Internet Explorer, as well as other Microsoft products, allows remote code execution on affected systems.

The company plans to integrate a feature that it calls Sets in a future feature update for Windows 10, and it is the functionality that Sets introduces that made Microsoft rethink Alt-Tab behavior.

Microsoft, at Build 2018 keynote, announced the arrival of tabs to everything with another expansion of its Sets feature for Windows 10, which has yet to be released in a public build.

Windows 10 Redstone 5 will also bring a new clipboard experience and this build introduces numerous upcoming changes. Windowing preferences have also arrived, letting users choose if apps or websites should open in new windows or tabs.

Furthermore, the company is now allowing developers to manage the colors inside an app, making it flexible to set the overall theme as per the brand's color scheme. Tabs now also restore faster.

Also on Tuesday, Microsoft issued an update for its Windows Server virtualization platform, Hyper-V. This is much in the same way that Sets and Timeline work.

Users can enable or change the settings of this new feature under the "Clipboard" setting in the System settings. Microsoft has acknowledged a few discrepancies in the colour scheme and is working to address it.

When it is released, it will only have access to texts, photos, and notifications. The feature can be accessed in three different ways: through the right-click (context) menu, the Edit menu, and by clicking CTRL + B.

Notepad has also had some updates.

Search on Windows 10 is now getting previews.

There is also a notable fix for a vulnerability in Exchange server you may want to review and deploy as well.

"In a web-based attack scenario, an attacker could host a specially crafted website that is created to exploit the vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website", Microsoft warns. You can even make some of those results easily accessible in the same location, with new Start tile folder naming.
