O/T: Windows 10 Clipboard

I've struggled for a long while with copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V). They or the right mouse click equivalent work well. But it has no memory back from the current item. That's annoying when you copied something, then something else but want to paste the former.

What I did not know until a couple of days ago is that Windows 10 has had a Clipboard since October 2018.

Activate it by following Settings > System > Clipboard. Then turn the Clipboard History switch on. You copy in the same way, but instead of Ctrl+V use Win+V - that's the key with the four window panes. A window opens and you select the item you want.

Thanks for the info, John. I use copy and paste quite often, but, over the years, I have forgotten about the Clipboard.
