    i was wondering if there was a way to 'view' the contents of the clipboard b/c when i take screen shots in powerdvd, sometimes the old copy gets stuck in the clipboard, so i was wondering if there was a way to view it and then clear it manually, (like in win98, u can view it by going into accessories), how do you do this in XP? :confused:

    Yes you can do it.

    Navigate to C:\windows\system32 directory

    Look for the file name Clipbrd (.exe)

    Then right click on it, click create shortcut--it will put it at the end of the list (usually). Drag or copy/paste the shortcut to your desktop or wherever you want it put.

    Then just double click the shortcut. If you leave it open, it will refresh every time. :D
