    How to access Clipboard History


    How can I access my Clipboard History, to paste something prior to the last thing I copied? I looked online for how to do this, and it looks simple. Either windows key + V or first go to Windows Settings - System - Clipboard to turn on. Neither of these work for me. There is no Clipboard option in Windows Settings - System, and the windows key + V does nothing. Any ideas how I can get it to work? I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise, Version 1803.

    Thank you.

    :)

    "Upon copying something, the previous clipboard content is always overwritten. This means that there is always no history saved on the clipboard. You can use third-party applications which record your clipboard history, but you cannot recover your clipboard
    history prior to the installation of that app.'

    Clipboard History still will not work

    I know some other users have had this problem but nothing I have read has cured it for me yet, including the reg edit suggested on this site --- have activated (ie. merged) this correctly. If my memory is correct I could not get the History before the May / July update so that is not the culprit. When I click Win+V all I get is the empty Clipboard History window. And by 'history' I mean the most recent Clips as well as earlier ones. Current clips are saved buy two third party apps, fortunately, so the Copy function does actually work, it is specifically Windows Clipboard History with the most recent addition to the Board which is kaput.

    I found the History useful and am at a loss to know what to do to get it back.

  4. How to access Clipboard History

    view clipboard history

    Hi,

    Windows Systems do not save the clipboard history. There is only one item stored in the clipboard. If you copy something new the previous clipboard contents is overwritten and lost forever. To get the full microsoft clipboard history you need to use third-party
    utilities.

    We recommend Clipdiary clipboard manager. It remembers everything you copy: plain text and text with formatting (rtf), html, pictures and files.

    Why do you need clipboard manager? What can you do with the microsoft clipboard history?

    -Quickly copy data back to the clipboard.

    -Paste any clip from the history directly to the selected application.

    -Search for the necessary clip by its contents.

    -Find out what program the data was copied from.

    -Delete clips.

    Please let me know, if that helps.

    Kind Regards:
