    Does anyone know how to access the clipboard viewer in XP? It used to be listed under accessories and system tools in ME but not there in XP!

    Hi,

    It is located in C:\windows\system32 directory

    Look for the file name Clipbrd.exe

    Then you will need to make a shortcut to it were ever you want it

    I put mine under system tools

    I right clicked start, went to programs then accessories but system tools is not shown in the accessories folder, even though it is shown when I left click start, then programs, and accessories! Why would it display it but not show it in the accessories folder?

    instead of "open" try "open all users"

    Easiest way to get a shortcut from the desktop to the start-menu is to just drag and drop. If you hover over the button for 2 secs it will open.

    I tried "open all users" and it worked, it showed the system tools file! I also tried the drag and drop by hovering over the start button and that worked as well! Great advice from both of you and thanks, I love this site so far!!!!! Larry

    Yeah it's a good site and it's building a good reputation.
    Free tech support better than the real thing! It's always a good feeling to help others also.
    Anyway, welcome to the forums. Hope to see you around in the near future. :)

    I use Netscape Composer, it can be open from the IE 6 toolbar.
    Composer also has a spell check, besides all the other things you can do on it.
    I've never seen a need for Windows clipboard viewer.

    If you can't see the difference you must not have used Composer.:D
