In some versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system, the contents of the clipboard can be viewed at any time by using the Clipboard Viewer (Clipbook Viewer in Windows XP and 2000) application (clipbrd.exe). In older versions of Windows the common practice was to open a copy of the "Notepad" or "Wordpad" editor, and paste into that. Often these operations are available from the "Edit" pull down menu and they may be available via a context menu, usually accessible by context-clicking in the window or dialog entry that is to be cut from or pasted into.

The standard Windows keybindings are:

* Ctrl-c to copy data onto the clipboard
* Ctrl-x to cut data to the clipboard
* Ctrl-v to paste data from the clipboard

alternative keybindings (available in most windows programs)

* Ctrl-Insert is copy
* Shift-Delete is cut
* Shift-Insert is paste

The 'clipboard' only holds the latest entry and is wiped clean when the computer is shut down. There are several utilities that will capture and retain all entries made to the clipboard so they may be accessed at a later time. I use "Clipdiary." Sooner or later you do have to 'clean house.'
