Clipboard History – Retaining Cut and Copy Records


The color drains from your face as panic overtakes you, realizing you have lost some of your best work with this mishap. Despite these commands’ popularity with users, the clipboard (as we previously knew it) had a significant limitation of holding only one item in its memory at a time. Noticing this issue and the market demand for improvements, Microsoft decided to address it. First appearing in Windows 10’s October 2018 update, Microsoft introduced the concept of clipboard history, which allows you to see multiple items that have been cut or copied recently. Currently, Windows 10 has a cloud-based clipboard that retains a history of the most recent 25 items you have cut or copied since the previous computer reboot, supporting text, HTML, and images smaller than 4MB.
