On Windows 11, the Clipboard history is an attribute that extends the functionality of the standard Clipboard functionality.
It does this by counting an interface that records the things you copy (text and images), which you can open to paste the data as needed. You can manage the data for quick access to frequent items.
And it can upload the data to the cloud and sync them across all your machines linked to the same Microsoft account.
This Windows 11 guide will walk you through the steps to enable and sync the Clipboard history feature across your devices.
You can enable the Clipboard history using the Windows Settings.
Enable and Sync Clipboard History on Windows 11
Open the Windows Settings. Once it opens, select System. On the right side, click the Clipboard option.
Now turn on the Clipboard history toggle switch.
Once you finish the steps, you can start copying and pasting with an added interface to supervise your copied contents.
On Windows 11, when you allow Clipboard history, you can also adjust the feature to upload and sync the data you copied across your systems linked with the Microsoft account, including those still on Windows 10.
To sync the content history to the cloud and across devices, all you need is to use these steps:
Open the Windows settings. Once it opens, select System. On the right side, click the Clipboard option.
Turn on the Sync across your devices toggle switch.
Select the sync option to use with the Clipboard:
- Automatically sync text that I copy — The Clipboard history will sync to the cloud and across your devices linked with the same Microsoft account.
- Never automatically sync text that I copy — You need to select the contents to upload to the cloud to make them public across devices.
Once you’re done, the items stored in the Clipboard history will sync across your devices, letting you paste text and images that you copied on other devices.
