Windows 7 - How to clear window's clipboard memory?

Asked By Eric on 06-Apr-10 12:20 PM
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to clear window's clipboard memory?
will window's clipboard only keep one thing at a time?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Eric

Yes...one at a time and each new item replaces the last.

Just copy a space or unprintable character into it.

Why do you want to do it? One way to get rid of what is there is simply
to copy something else.




Yes.

ory?

I just found out that I have no clipbrd.exe, yet I can still save
screens.

Interesting.

The clipboard viewer is not necessary for the clipboard feature to
function.  But to add Clipboard Viewer, open Control Panel, Add/Remove
Programs, Add/Remove Windows Components, double-click "Accessories and
Utilities", double-click "Accessories" and add a check to the box left
of "Clipboard Viewer".

Three points:

1. Despite what many people often say, clipbrd.exe is *not* the
clipboard. The clipboard is not a program, it is just the place in RAM
where what is clipped is stored. Clipboard.exe is the clipboard
*viewer*.

2. Although some people find the clipboard viewer useful, personally I
never use it. If I want to know what is in the clipboard, I find it
much easier just to paste it (and if I do not like it, I can easily
delete what I pasted).

3. If you want the clipboard viewer, see Elmo's reply in this thread,
and follow his advice.

memory?

I agree with you.

All someone has to do is a Shift-Insert to see what is in memory.
