Windows 10 brought a clipboard feature that can memorize everything you copy. It’s useful when you deal with many stuff to copy and paste, but you want them to get cleared. Here’s how to clear clipboard in Windows 10.

Windows 10’s clipboard works just like your smartphone’s keyboard clipboard, like SwiftKey’s. You copy one thing, and then another thing. Both will appear in the clipboard, which can be accessed by pressing Windows Logo+V.

When you open the clipboard, you can select any stuff you have copied to get pasted again. It’s a handy feature allowing you to pin copied information that you want to paste repeatedly, without having to copy it every single time you want to paste.

But, sometimes you copied a lot of stuff, and most of them aren’t necessary to be in the clipboard anymore. Don’t worry, it’s easy to clear them all.
