Any way to access copy clipboard on windows 7?

As you may know, Windows XP had the clipbrd file in system32 which kept a record of what you've had copied. I would like to access some copied text that i copied a few days ago but my computer crashed due to a power outage so i wasn't able to save the changes to a notepad file. I know third party softwares like clipboard viewers can be downloaded and used to save future instances but i would like to know if there is a way to access the history as I stand?

Hello theweeknd, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The clipboard in Windows 7 only holds one item. If you copy anything else, the last copied item in the clipboard gets replaced.

There is no further history than the last item copied to the clipboard.

At least there's plenty of good free 3rd party clipboard programs out there though.

That is true. I'll have to use those for future mess ups.
