I do not believe so.
In Windows XP, only the last copy is saved on the clipboard, replacing the
previous one.

MS Word XP, or the Office suite, I believe does have the ability to save
mutliple copies on the clipboard.

Word 2003 and Word XP allow you to save only 1 item on the clipboard when
closing out of the program. In Word 2003 you can hold up to 24 items on the
clipboard -- but when you close out of the program they will be lost except
for the most recent item. Do you know how to show the task pane clipboard
contents in word? Here is a suggestion -- open a blank doc in addition to
the project you are working on every time you copy and paste or cut and paste
add the same item to the blank doc. Next save the doc with a name like
"cliping" then you can save that as long as you are needing them for your
project. open that cliping file when you need items form it to copy from and
paste from in any of your other office docs. Hope this helps.

It would be a good idea for Microsoft to improve this, such as have a "happy
place" for clip board items that you could right click on in the task pane or
in a document and choose to send a copy to a reserve file or project file
like a favorites for clipboard items. It could happen...

Investigate Thornsoft's ClipMate. I've used it for some time. It
records a database of prior clips, lets you display them several ways,
lets you convert them, create vaults to store them (so they don't
auto-expire), provides screen and window capture, lets you copy a bunch
of clips and then paste them altogether, can automatically check for
updates, you can share the clip database amonst users or keep yours
private, you can search for clips, and much more (I keep finding new
features).

I don't see the point of seeing just what clips you've had in the last
hour or for the last day. ClipMate can keep them for as long as you
configure it to keep them. I believe it retains up to 200 clips in its
Inbox (most recent clips). If there are more than 200 clips in the
Inbox, on shutdown of Clipmate it will move the overage into the
Overflow folder which can hold 800 clips, and any overage over the 800
limit for the Overflow folder or any that you delete into the Trashcan
will be held for the configured retention period (7 days is the
default). Currently my Inbox clips go back to back to Oct 6, my
Overflow folder has clips going back to Sep 14, and my Trashcan has
clips that got deleted within the last week.

I also have safe collections, or vaults of clips, where I save clips,
like for canned replies to highly repeated questions from users too lazy
to do a search before posting a knee-jerk question. This allows you to
even structure a personal infobase of clips where you can categorize
your clips.

There are probably other clip managers but they'd be hard pressed to
beat the features in ClipMate. It costs $30.

Hello. I do not believe what you need is available in WindowsXP. There
are some free/pay type clipboards ,search Google.
I remember one called Clipomatic.
Take Care.

There a variety of clipboard tools that will do this, some free some
not, look at Yankee Clipper, Clipboard Magic, Clipomatic, etc.
