So many times when I ask for help I'm asked to copy something and past it to Clip Board. Problem is I can't find Clip Board in W7 home premium. I have tried the search off of the Start button, no help. Is there a Clip Board in W7 and if there is how do I find it? :huh:

Windows 7, as well as Vista doesn't have "Clipboard Viewer" like XP does. Don't ask me why :huh:
If you really want to have it, find someone with XP, copy clipbrd.exe from XP and paste it to C:\Windows\System32 folder on your computer.
BY double clicking on clipbrd.exe, you'll see Clipboard content.

Well that's why I can't find it. Thanks Broni. I feel better now. I will just use Note pad or Word pad.

You know, Windows clipboard sucks anyway since it can store just one item.
There are good replacements for it: http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-...ent-utility.htm
Personally, I use Clipmate (not free) and I'm very happy camper.

Thanks for your replies. http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-...ent-utility.htm Went there both were tested on XP and 32 byte only. Went to Clip Collector and it doesn't say 32 or 64. I'm W7 64.

I don't think Desktop Gadgets are bit-dependent (32 or 64 bit). You should be able to use it just the same. Try downloading it and installing it. :huh:

Sure. Most 32-bit programs will run on 64-bit system.

I down loaded Clip Collector two times and it doesn't work for me. Thanks for all your ideas.
