It is well known that operating systems have so many tricks and keyboard shortcuts that it is difficult to understand them, as is often the case with this beneficial one for copying and pasting content.
We all know that sometimes operating system limitations make small tasks tedious. An example is usually the copy and pastes function, which can sometimes be tedious and endless due to the great content about moving from one place to another or the repetition of movements.
However, there is a trick that very few know and can be of great help when copying different content: a history of copied items that can be accessed quickly. If you did not think it, we assure you that it is straightforward to activate and use.
Thanks to a configuration of buttons, you can activate the Clipboard History. That allows you to use elements long after being copied or access a previous one if more have been copied. Let’s see how this can be activated in a minute.
To be able to activate this function, you have to enter the Clipboard options. All you have to do is type its name in the Windows search tab. Once you are inside, you must activate the Clipboard History option. We mark it in red in the following image:
Once it is active, when you select that you want to copy any content, it will be saved in the history.
If you want to access it to copy an item, you must press the Windows + V key combination. Then, as you can see below, a tab will appear with your history at your disposal.
As reported in Lifehacker, this option can be exciting if you spend all day with documents. You usually copy email addresses, data, or many other tasks. In addition, it does not take up any space or change in any way the regular use of Windows 10.
Sometimes the best tricks are installed in the same operating system without users knowing they exist. Like this one to copy and paste the text.
