Using the Clipboard in MS Office

MS Office 2007 & 2010: I Thought That the Clipboard Could Hold More Than One Item?

You’re right – it can…
you were used to accessing something like this via the Edit menu in older
versions of MS Office:

A clipboard pane where all
the items that have been copied or cut, are stacked in a list up to 24 items

You can then go back and
paste anything from that list into any of the Office Suite programs.

It’s handy… especially
if you’ve got multiple pieces of information to move from one program or file
to another.

You can copy up to 24 items,
switch to the other file or program, then paste each item where it needs to be.

The question for the users
of the newest MS Office versions is, where exactly did the clipboard go?

The answer is nowhere…
you just have to know where they’ve moved it.

In these newest versions
of Office, you need to be on the Home tab of the Ribbon.

On the far left side you’ll
find the Clipboard group.

Click the dialog launcher in the bottom right corner of the group.

Voila! Clipboard displayed
right where you remember it…

It couldn’t get any easier
than that!
