The Clipboard Viewer

The Clipboard viewer maintains the items within its window so you can view, select, copy, and paste items at will. You can copy several items and paste them all at once with the Paste All command or even clear all copied items. To access the Clipboard viewer select the dropdown at the top of the worksheet task pane. If your task pane is not visible you access the task pane from the View menu and select Task Pane or press Ctrl+F1. The Clipboard viewer feature can be a hindrance to some users, but you can turn it off. To turn off the Clipboard viewer, select the Options button at the bottom of the Clipboard and select Collect Without Showing Office Clipboard, as shown in Figure 3.1.
