    I was told that it is possible to retrieve the clipboard
    history,in other word see what has been copied and
    pasted.

    How is it done ?

    AFAIK, in native Windows, there is no way to see previous clipboard contents. There are utilities that allow you to maintain a larger clipboard, in which case this would be possible.

    Thanks.
    What did you mean by native Window ? Never heard that
    expression.

    I mean plain old vanilla Windows with no 3rd party (additional) programs added.

    Do a Google, etc. search for "Clipdiary." It is a marvelous utility.
