Windows 7: Clipboard content

Clipboard content

It seems that Clipboard is designed to remember the last instance of copy only. Is there a way of making Clipboard remember more than one copy so that you can view the list of copied items and select which one to paste?

Thanks in advance.

It's my understanding that the default Windows clipboard is designed to save only one item. As soon as you save something new, any previously saved item is deleted. Same is true if you power off the computer. There are other free clipboard alternatives that you might find useful. Likewise, there are paid clipboard managers that offer added features not found in the free versions. You could Google clipboard managers to see what's available.

Clipboard Shortcut
In XP I have a shortcut which opens up the clipboard so I can see what is on it. C:\WINDOWS\system32\clipbrd.exe In Windows 7 I looked for a command to make a similar shortcut but I was not able to find clipbrd.exe. Does it go by another name now or is it gone?
