The testers pointed to the program Windows Insider were able to test with the version 17666 launched in may support the veteran’s program with the codes of end of line from other operating systems such as Linux or macOS.

Finally, the search has been improved to add an option that lets you continue the search from the beginning of the file up to the cursor position once you reach the end of the file. In addition, when we open the search dialog will be populated by default with the text you have selected.
