How do I activate and use the new Windows clipboard?
The revised Windows clipboard is available from Windows 10 version 1909*.
Before using the new clipboard, it must first be activated. This can be done in the settings under System / Clipboard. A faster way is to use the key combination Windows key + V. In the following dialog, simply click on Turn on.
Copying to the clipboard is still done with CTRL + C. To call the extended clipboard, the key combination Windows key + V is used. Windows then displays the contents of the clipboard in a list. The last copied entry is at the top. This is also selected when CTRL + V is pressed as usual.
To navigate the list, the usual arrow up, arrow down and Enter keys for confirmation are available.
*You can identify your installed Windows version by pressing the key combination Windows + R and entering winver in the Run dialog.
