Any Google Lens experts out there who can help this old Luddite. I took a photo of text, chose "select all" then choose "copy to computer." I selected my laptop and I opened up Google Chrome browser first. Got a message: "Text copied." EXACTLY WHERE on my laptop do I find it??

Then I chose "copy text" and it said: "Copied to clipboard." EXACTLY WHAT/WHERE is a Clipboard?

Thank you in advance.

thank you very much but I don't know what you mean by "memory" and don't know what Ctrl + V means.

Clipboard is a memory location.
Ctrl + C is Copy
Ctrl + Z is Undo
Ctrl + V is Paste
etc.
That's default Windows and if it's not Windows that you're using then you should mention which OS you're using.

I'm using Windows 10 - I do recognize those Ctrl actions but don't understand what they mean about my using Google Lens. Google Lens said that I successfully copied the text to my laptop - Where on the laptop is it? It also said that I copied the text to Clipboard. Where is Clipboard, how do I find it? Thank you again

Please… google for it and you’ll get the full information
Copy images and text from one PC to another with a cloud-based clipboard. Not only can you can paste from your clipboard history, but you can also pin the items you find yourself using all the time.

  1. To get to your clipboard history at any time, press Windows logo key + V. You can also paste and pin frequently used items by choosing an individual item from your clipboard menu.
  2. To share your clipboard items across your Windows 10 devices, select Start > Settings > System > Clipboard. Choose Automatically sync text that I copy under Sync across devices. The sync feature is tied to your Microsoft account, or your work account, so remember to use the same login information on all your devices.

I didn’t do much, hope you can work it out, there are some clipboard utilities that save more than one item and that you can select them later
