Windows Supports Insert?

I just discovered that windows supports ctrl+ins / shift+ins. Now for thoes that dont know ctrl+ins is like ctrl+c or copy and shift+ins is like ctrl+v or paste — this is something I’ve known for a long time from my linux usage. But I’ve never seen it work in windows nativly (other than random applications that supported it). Today, I discovered that indeed ctrl/shift+Insert now work in windows. I confirmed this with The Goupil and The Hoff. Both were very supprised as was I. WHEN DID THIS START WORKING? AND WHY DIDNT ANYONE TELL ME.

PS. Another cool keyboard trick is ctrl+backspace — it deletes entire words at a time.
