How to quickly open the ClipBook Viewer

Published: September 7, 2006

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.

You can also store information permanently in your local ClipBook and share it with other users. The local ClipBook opens when you start ClipBook Viewer.

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

To open the ClipBook View


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

Desktop shortcut menu with New—Shortcut selected


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


Click Next.

Create Shortcut Wizard with ClipBook location entered and Next button selected


Click Finish.

Select a Title for the Program page with Finish button selected


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