Tech Bytes: Find your clipboard history easily

If you’re like me, you copy and paste text and images all day long. It’s annoying when you accidentally copy over your last selection. That’s where Clipboard history comes in. You can store up to 25 entries so you can go back and grab your recent selections.

To enable Clipboard history:

Click Start > Settings (the gear icon) > System

Click Clipboard, then toggle “Clipboard history” on

Once you’ve turned history on, hit Windows + V to bring up a list of items you’ve copied. A window will pop up, starting with the most recent item. You can click any of them to copy again.

Want to wipe out your Clipboard history? Use the steps above to navigate to your Clipboard settings, and choose Clear under “Clear clipboard data.”

To delete or pin a single item, click the three dots next to it in the Clipboard history pop-up.
