NOTE: The new clipboard features are available starting with Windows 10 October 2018 Update. If you have an
older version of Windows,
you cannot use the new clipboard. If the new clipboard features do not work on your PC, make sure that you enabled the Clipboard history, as shown in the
first section of this guide:

How to view the clipboard in Windows 10

In Windows 10 October 2018 Update, checking your
clipboard
contents is easy: press the Windows + V keys on your keyboard simultaneously, and you should get a window called Clipboard that lists all the items you
have copied to the clipboard. It should look similar to this:

The Clipboard window

All the items that you recently copied to the clipboard are listed vertically, starting from the most recent one at the top. If you want to see the older
clipboard items, scroll downwards in the Clipboard window.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The clipboard in Windows 10 only supports text, HTML code and images that are less than 1 MB in size. Any other type of content or content
that is larger than 1 MB is not saved into your clipboard, and there is no message telling you that.

How to paste the most recent item from the clipboard in Windows 10

If you want to paste the latest item that you sent to the clipboard, open the application in which you want to paste it, and press the Ctrl + V keys on
your keyboard. Usually, you can also do the same thing by right-clicking in that app window and then by choosing the Paste option from the contextual menu
displayed.

However, in Windows 10, you can also use the Clipboard window to paste the last item in it. Go to the window in which you want to paste it, press the Windows
+ V keys on your keyboard, and then click or tap the first element in the Clipboard window.

How to pin items to the clipboard in Windows 10

Sometimes, you might have some information that you use often, and you want it to be easily accessible. A good example would be an address or a phone number
that you need to paste in multiple documents and at various times. In such a situation, the Windows 10 clipboard can be handy. You can copy that information
to your clipboard and then pin it, so that it is always available in the clipboard, even if you reboot your Windows 10 PC or clear the other contents of
the clipboard.
if your using jaws, and you want to pin an item,
1, windows-key+v=clipboard window,
2, now tab enter on,
more button,

delete,
pin,

hope this helps.
