Using the Clipboard: Move or copy the text to the Clipboard by
clicking the Cut or Copy button, pressing Ctrl+X or Ctrl+C, or right-clicking
and choosing Cut or Copy on the shortcut menu. The text is moved
or copied to an electronic holding tank called the Clipboard. Paste the
text by clicking the Paste button, pressing Ctrl+V, or right-clicking and
choosing Paste. You can find the Paste, Cut, and Copy buttons on the
Home tab.
Taking advantage of the Clipboard task pane
The Windows Clipboard is a piece of work. After you copy or cut text
with the Cut or Copy command, the text is placed on the Clipboard. The
Clipboard holds the last 24 items that you cut or copied. You can open
the Clipboard task pane and view the last 24 items you cut or copied to the
Clipboard and cut or copy them anew, as shown in Figure 2-1.

To open the Clipboard task pane, go to the Home tab and click the Clipboard
group button (it’s to the right of the word Clipboard in the upper-left corner
of the screen). Icons next to the items tell you where they came from. To
copy an item, click it or open its drop-down list and choose Paste. The
Clipboard is available to all Office applications; it’s especially useful for
copying text and graphics from one Office application to another.
