Windows 7: Remember clipboard from last session?

Remember clipboard from last session?

Is it possible to have Windows 7 Professional retain the contents of the clipboard until I clear it manually? I'd like it to be able to shut down without deleting clipboard contents.

not with the standard windows clipboard - it's stored in ram.

you'll have to save the contents to disk if you want it next time you boot up.

you'll have to use a different clipboard manager to save between sessions - look at clipx - it does work in x64 - i've just tried it.

*edit* oops - yowanvista got there first - and his offering seems a lot more modern than mine...

I've been using CLCL for a long time now and I like it a lot.
No installation necessary; I have mine set to keep the last 30 clips but that is adjustable; easy Alt+C access (configurable); allows Templates to be made...

A great little utility that plays well with Windows 7.
You can get it here: CLCL - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

do these programs actually save the contents to disk, so they are still there when you reboot?

clipx does...

CLCL keeps the 'clips' on disk in it's own folder... I have it set to start with Windows.
All the clips from the previous session are still there.

Thanks, Yowan! I've been using the gadget since you presented it but, for others, here is a chance to try something else free:
Giveaway of the Day- ClipboardCC, a clipboard manager with some additional functions.

I'm sure it will be on The Howling Wolves Giveaway of the Day page soon. Sorry, HW, no preemption intended.

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?
