Windows 10 Clipboard History Revisited
Clipboard History in Windows 10 should be called a clipboard manager but it’s not – because hey, this is Microsoft. This clipboard manager comes with Windows 10 and it works pretty well. It’s been around since Windows 10 Version 1803, but in 1903 it gets a whole lot easier to use.

1.) Press Windows Key + i to open Settings
2.) In Settings click on “System”
3.) Click on “Clipboard” on the sidebar on the left.
4.) Under “Clipboard” turn the switch to “On”
After you turn Download history on, you can see what is saved on your Windows clipboard by pressing the Windows key + V. See?
While viewing your clipboard history, if you want to copy a “clip” just click on it and paste it wherever you want.
