    Unfortunately, Clipboard Viewer – clipbrd [#9] isn’t working on my PC {Win10 Pro b1709]. Neither clipbrd.msc, clipbrd.cpl or clipbrd.exe.

      The reason why it’s not working for you is that the command is not clipbrd.msc or clipbrd.cpl it’s clipbrd . I copied the info to my clipboard from the article and their is no .msc or .cpl after the command clipbrd.
