    I have WinXp Home now and cannot find the clpbrd.exe on my hard drive. It was there in the XP version I used previously. I like to have a shortcut to it on my desktop. I looked in the windows folder to no avail. Must be somewhere bec it works. Can you tell me how to get the shortcut?
    Thanks--KDR

    this is what you want to do

    1. Right-click your desktop, point to New, and then click Shortcut.
    2. In the location field, type C:WINDOWS\system32\clipbrd.exe.
    3. Click Next to give it a name, ie:..(clipboard or clipbook)

    then click Finish and youÂ’re all set

    hope this helps
