Using the Control C and Control V commands to copy text is a very handy technique.
However, there are times when you would prefer that this "clipboard" remains empty.
How do you "Clear" any text?

Another option. Start Button > run > type > Clipbrd.
To empty your Clipboard, > Edit > Delete

Or create a shortcut.
