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

The additions/changes in this maint. release are VERY nice. Interaction between clipdiary and all the stuff I use it with is smoother than ever. Can't imagine life without it at this point. VERY fond of it's minimalist, fast and streamlined approach, now with even FEWER keystrokes. Just love it.
