Access Clipboard History

posted in: Shortcut of the Week | 0

When you copy some text or an image using Control + C, it goes onto the Windows clipboard. In Windows 10, the clipboard remembers up to 24 items that have been copied recently.
As you may know, you can press Control + V to paste the last item that was copied.
But you can press Windows + V to access the clipboard history. Then arrow down to the copied item that you want, and press Enter to paste it!
This feature must be switched on in the Windows 10 settings. Press Windows + I, type in clipboard, then Arrow down to clipboard settings and press Enter. Tab to the On switch for Clipboard History and press the Spacebar.
If you do not have these options, or you are using a previous version of Windows, you can press Alt + F O in Office applications to open the clipboard history pane.
