    This tip failed to mention the Windows Clipboard History. Using Win + V will open the last 25 or so items you have copied so you can choose which one you want to paste. The first time you use Win + V it will ask you if you want to use Clipboard History. After that it simply works This is available in up to date Windows 10 and in Windows 11. If you find it is not working, open Settings and search for Clipboard and turn it on.
