There is no direct way to clear the windows clipboard. You may select some text or image and press Ctrl+C to overwrite the current clipboard contents. The clipboard won't become empty but its contents will be different.

We have Clear Clipboard - a small freeware utility that makes the windows clipboard empty.

Clipdiary clipboard manager also can make windows clipboard empty. To clear the system clipboard you should do the following:

  • Hit Ctrl+D to pop up Clipdiary
  • Click Clip -> Empty Windows Clipboard

With Clipdiary you can clear clipboard every time you need and get the complete history of what you are copying to the clipboard for easy reuse.

Happy People

I'm working as webmaster and content manager for large e-shop. During my daily work i have to use copy-paste windows buttons for coping text site content, site addresses, e-mail addresses, aim contacts, pictures. I find out that i can store only single item in clipboard buffer, so if another object is copied i lost previous and next ones. It was very great inconvenience for me until i started to use ClipDiary. It was like a pill. My copy paste productivity increased twice and i feel myself better cause i have not to worry about my clipboard buffer storage - all my copy paste content was stored and i can use where ever i want in any time. No more wasting time switching between browser tabs, doing unnecessary extra clicks. The program is really great and valuable even essential.
