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

Clipdiary is a great utility and makes my (programming) life much easier! At first I installed it because auf the unlimited persisting history of everything that goes into the clipboard, which is exactly what I was looking for. Until I found out that the hotkeys for changing between the clipboard entries are also inestimable useful. Now I use them frequently.
