Microsoft has made significant improvements to the Find/Replace feature in Notepad. The search dialog has a new "Wrap-Around", and the Notepad will remember the previously entered keywords, which will be automatically populated the next time the user opens the Find dialog.
In Notepad, users can zoom fonts very conveniently. Several options have been added to the Zoom option in the View drop-down menu to change the zoom level and display the current zoom level on the status bar. Users can also use the "Ctrl" and "+" and "-" buttons, as well as the mouse wheel to zoom, using the "Ctrl" and "0" number buttons will return to the default zoom level.
Line number for automatic line break:
The user's long-term feedback is to be able to display the line number and column number when starting the automatic line break. This feature was finally introduced in the new version and is activated by default. The user can close the status bar in the view menu.

● Notepad supports "Ctrl" + "Backspace" to delete previous words
● Use the arrow keys to move the cursor when no text is selected
● Save the file in Notepad, the line number and column number are no longer reset to 1

Remote Desktop Support Biosensor
In this version of Windows 10, Azure Active Directory and Active Directory can use biometrics to authenticate remote desktop sessions through Windows Hello for Business.
Note: This feature is not compatible with weak PIN codes.
To use this feature, first launch Remote Desktop Connection (mstsc.exe), enter the computer you want to connect to and select Connect.
Because you need to log in using Windows Hello for Business, Windows will remember your login method and automatically select Windows Hello for Business to verify your RDP session, but users can choose more options to choose other authentication methods.
For example, Windows uses face recognition to authenticate RDP sessions to access Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V.server. Also use Windows Hello for Business in remote session mitigation, but you must use a PIN.
Web Sign-in login to Windows 10
Previously, Windows logins only supported identity federation using ADFS, or other providers that supported the WS-Fed protocol. In this version, Microsoft introduced "Web Sign-In", which is a new way to log in to Windows PC. Web Sign-in can support non-ADFS providers (such as SAML) for Windows login.
To try Web Sign-in, the steps are as follows
1. Add your Windows 10 to Azure AD (Note: Web Sign-in only supports Azure AD PCs)
2. Set the following policy to activate Web Sign-in (Policy CSP/Authentication/EnableWebSignIn)
3. In the lock screen interface, select Web Sign-in in the login mode option.
4. Click the "Sign in" button to continue
Fast login for Windows 10 shared PC
Is there a shared PC in your office environment? Do you want to use your account to log in to the PC faster? Since this release, Microsoft has introduced the "Fast Sign-in" feature, which allows users to log in to a shared PC faster.
To activate the Fast Sign-in function, the steps are as follows
1. Set up a share or client PC on a Windows 10 system
2. Set the policy to activate Fast Sign-in (Policy CSP/Authentication/EnableFastFirstSignIn)
3. After the policy is activated, use your account to log in to the shared PC and you will find the difference.
