    I'm sorry 24seven, I must be an idiot. I did not understand those instructions at all. Very confusing.
    I was just curious as to how to get into the "Clipboard" program because for the last couple years when I try to save something, anything and it offers up "save to clipboard", thats what I click on. I was just wondering where to find it as I want to see all that I have saved there over the last few years.
    thats all.

Go to Start then Run then Enter clipbrd.exe this will give you the clipboard viewer. In case you did not know Clipboard is the place where temporary data is being stored. It is based on your systems memory. Once you turn off your PC it will automatically remove all its contents.

Ok, a combination of hitting keys CTRL (control) and "C" at the same time will make Windows Copy the most recently selected word text or graphics. Then using the combo of CTRL and "V" would paste that into another program. Try Notepad and type the word COPY. Now select that word with mouse drag and then use key combo of CTRL_C. Now open Wordpad (or another notepad) and then use CTRL-V and the word COPY was now pasted into the other program. So the retrieve is the CTRL V combo.

What does" saved to clipboard" mean? And where can I view my clipboard?

Clipboard is a temporary memory that it just saves one thing. Like copy paste. When you copy something is stored into this clipboard. The only way to see what is inside the clipboard you just click paste.

I have a DMC ZS5 and I took pictures in the clipboard setting by accident. Can I get the pictures off the camera on into my computer? I tried connecting it through the USB port but nothing happens.

Put the camera in clipboard mode...the rec/play switch to play. Now the clipboard menu is accessible and gives you the option to copy the clipboard to a memory card.

I have a laptop Acer Aspire 7720Z with built-in a Crystal Eye. Until 1/2 year ago I could print out what was seen on the screen. Now I get a message saying: Can´t open.... Please help me Thor B....

If you want to print a copy of what's on the screen, press the key marked "Print Scrn" or "Print Screen". Although you won't see anything happen, this will put a copy of the screen into the Windows clipboard. Open the Paint program that can be found by going to Start - Programs - Accessories - Paint and select Edit - Paste. This will copy the desktop image from the clipboard into the program. Then Select File and Print.
If you prefer, you can also paste the picture from the clipboard into any paint-type program, or even Microsoft Word or a word processing program. It's a little bit of work, but when you need to save a copy of something on the screen, being able to print the screen can be invaluable.
Let me know if this helps,if not i will help you,cannot be here all day but will be back when i can.....good luck..........

make sure you are running as the administrator
The clipboard may be disabled. When you copy something it copys it to the Clipboard so that you can paste it later. check to see that the Clipboard service is enabled. go to START , RUN, Type Services.msc. Look for clipboard and make sure its automatic, and enabled, .

When I use the copy option it shows copied to clipboard. Where is the clipboard located and how do I access it.

i have never seen a clipboard. i am thinking the hero just copies (or cuts) to memory and you can paste into another text field in a different program.

there are apps from the android market that work just like the standard clipboard you're use to.
