Global Clipboard?

Has a global clipboard been introduced into Windows 7? What I mean is something like the Office clipboard that works with all Apps.

I can't find anything that would sugguest there is, but maybe I overlooked this?

global clipboard? It seems to me that the clipboard has been global since the days of Windows 95. I mean, when you copy something it copies data into the Windows clipboard, it's up to the program that you are pasting into whether or not it wants to accept the type of data, and how it will parse it.

He probably means a clipboard that can hold multiple things, and allows you to pick and choose, ala office.

Aye multiple items oc. I don't always want to paste the last thing I copied and it seems a bit silly to need to have Nopepad open and copy/paste into that.

Check out Ditto (Ditto clipboard manager). The functionality isn't built into the OS as best as I can tell but I use this at work and it is truly a lifesaver at times.
