Copy and Paste History Settings – Use Previous Copied Text!

Ever wish you could see and use a history of things you copied onto the clipboard?

It’s a feature built into Windows that is turned off by default.

To turn it on, type “Clipboard” in the windows search space and click on Clipboard Settings.

Once in Clipboard Settings simply turn on “Clipboard History”.

Now simply press the Windows keyboard key then the letter V to see all of the recent clips that you can choose to paste!

BONUS – Do you use your Microsoft account to sign on to more than one device? While in Clipboard Settings, click on “Sync across devices” so that anything you copied to the clipboard on one device is accessible on your other Windows devices.
