How to quickly open the ClipBook Viewer

When you use the Cut or Copy command on the Edit menu, the material you cut or copy is automatically copied to the Clipboard. The Clipboard is a temporary holding area for the items you've cut or copied. You can use the ClipBook Viewer to see the information that you've copied to the Clipboard.

The ClipBook Viewer isn't listed on the Start menu in Microsoft Windows XP, so if you want quick access to it, create a shortcut on your desktop.

To open the ClipBook Viewer

  1. Right-click your desktop, point to New, and then click Shortcut.

  2. In the location field, type %windir%\system32\clipbrd.exe. Click Next.

  3. Click Finish.

  4. Now you can double-click the clipbrd shortcut on your desktop to launch the ClipBook Viewer.
