Windows-V to reach your clipboard history


Some of us get so used to the old ways of doing things in Windows that we don't check out the newer ways. I am that person. However, copy/paste is so fundamental in everything we do on our computers that we really need to start using the clipboard history tool found in Windows 10 and Windows 11 to let us "copy" and "paste" multiple items.

Continue to use Control-C to copy items to the clipboard. However, instead of Control-V to paste into into your document, use Windows-V, i.e. use the little Windows key on your keyboard. If you have copied multiple items to your clipboard, you will see a list of those items you have copied and you can choose which one to paste into your document.

Activate clipboard history

If you have not activated clipboard history, just type "clipboard" in the windows search and then slide the clipboard history toggle to the "on" position.

Pin a clip

When you reboot your computer, everything in your clipboard is deleted. You can also choose to just clear the items within the clipboard panel. However, if you really need to keep an item for future use, you can choose to "pin" it and the item will save for the future.

Windows 11 expands the clipboard.

While Windows 10 gives you the basic functions of the clipboard history, Windows 11 goes way beyond and offers you more. If you weren't sure you wanted Windows 11, now you know you do. 😁

Need an emoji?

The clipboard comes preloaded with emojis to paste into your more informal documents.❤️❤️ Or maybe you would like the old-school symbols, such as :).

Have trouble using the international keyboard?

If you occasionally need to type non-English words into your documents, you may have to learn an international keyboard, which can take some practice to learn the key combinations that give you, say, an é or an è. With the clipboard, you can just paste these non-English alphabet letters into your document from the clipboard's symbols section.

And don't forget the handy math symbols. ¾ or ⅓.
