If you have not cleared the clipboard it will retrieve whatever was last copied but when you copy something new the clipboard contents will be overwritten. There is no simple way of getting the clipboard history back by the means of Windows OS.

To check clipboard history you need to use special software - clipboard manager. Clipdiary will save all what you are copying to the clipboard. Different types of text, pictures, html, lists of copied files... So you can simply check clipboard history whenever you want and copy the items back to the clipboard and reuse them.

After you installed Clipdiary clipboard manager all you need to check your clipboard history is to hit Ctrl+D to pop up clipboard history viewer

Happy People

As an IT professional providing remote services to end users, I deal with tons of text and files every day - everything from license keys to utilities and other files. Without this program I would constantly be flipping between countless windows to recopy information I had previously grabbed. Clipdiary has saved me untold hours with it's quick view database and ability to hold such a large amount of data.
