How to enable Clipboard History feature in Windows 11

Microsoft’s Windows 11 operating system includes a number of enhancements designed to improve the user experience. Clipboard history is one such function that saves records of recently copied or cut items from the system that can be used at a later time.

The clipboard feature normally only holds one thing at a time, however the Clipboard history feature increases the holding capacity. When the feature is activated, the user has access to 25 recent items rather than just the most recently copied or cut item. This means that the user can effortlessly copy many objects to the clipboard and paste them elsewhere, eliminating the need to switch between two programs.

We will show you how to enable the Clipboard History function on Windows 10 or Windows 11 computers in this step-by-step guide.
