Clipboard in Vista Home

Could some kind person tell me how I access the clipboard in Vista, please.

But in XP you can go to Start > Run, type in:


and click OK. It's bound to be the same in Vista, I would think. You could then create a shortcut to it in the normal way, if you want to access it a lot.

To access "Run", hold down the Windows Key and press "R".

Taken from a Vista forum:

From what I understand, you can't view the clipboard in Windows Vista. If you can find someone who has Windows XP and get them to send a copy of clipbrd.exe from their c/windows/system32 folder, you can copy that file into the same folder in Vista and it works. It's easiest to create a shortcut to that from wherever you find easiest to open it from (eg: desktop, quicklaunch or start menu)

Thanks, I have a cptr running XP [always useful] and will do as you suggest. Ab68

Although the clipboard is available within Vista it remains unseen.

"You can copy or move information such as text and pictures between files and programs in Windows using a temporary storage space called the Clipboard. The Clipboard is not visible, so keep in mind that even though you use the Clipboard to copy and paste information between files, you will never actually see the Clipboard when you do so."
