But wait! Did you know there is NO Clipboard viewer in Win 8.1 (and maybe others after Win XP)?
So? you might ask. Well, how do you know what's in clipboard at any given time?
Search Google like crazy, and only after a long time will you find that you have to go and copy it from WinXP (which I still run elsewhere).
In WinXP it's located in:
You've got to copy this file (to a USB or so drive) and paste it into the same location in Win8.1.
Then it's handy to make a shortcut to it:
Either - locate it in the new folder and right-click and "Send to Desktop/Create shortcut",
or - right click on desktop and create a shortcut by pasting in the location of the file.
Then it works
