How do we access the second last copied stuff on our clipboard?



As an IT administrator, it can be useful to access the second-last item that was copied onto the clipboard. This is an especially useful feature for people who are working with multiple documents and need to quickly switch back and forth between them.

The first step to access the second-last item on the clipboard is to open the clipboard. This can be done by pressing the Windows key and the letter “r” at the same time. This will open the Run box. From there, type in “clipbrd” and hit enter. This will open the Windows Clipboard Viewer.

Once the Clipboard Viewer is open, you will see the most recent item that was copied onto the clipboard. To access the second-last item, you will need to scroll down the list of items. Each item will have a number next to it. The number indicates the order in which the item was copied onto the clipboard. To access the second-last item, you will need to scroll down to the item that has the second-lowest number.

It is also possible to access the second-last item on the clipboard using a keyboard shortcut. In order to do this, you will need to press the Windows key and the letter “h” at the same time. This will open the Windows History Viewer. From there, select the Clipboard tab and you will be able to view all the items that have been copied onto the clipboard. To access the second-last item, you will need to scroll down to the item that has the second-lowest number.

Once you have accessed the second-last item on the clipboard, you can use it as needed. If you need to copy the item onto the clipboard again, you can do so by right-clicking on the item and selecting “Copy”. You can also paste the item into an open document by right-clicking on the document and selecting “Paste”.

Accessing the second-last item on the clipboard can be a useful tool for IT administrators. It can help save time when switching between documents and can be done quickly with a few simple steps. Remember to open the Windows Clipboard Viewer or the Windows History Viewer in order to access the second-last item. Once you have accessed the item, you can copy or paste it as needed.
