Where’s the Clipboard Viewer in Windows XP?

Clipboard ViewerFor some reason, Windows XP messed up the Clipboard Viewer. It’s barely listed on the Help menus, and it isn’t installed automatically when you upgrade to Windows XP. Even when you tell Windows to install it from its CD, it doesn’t put a Clipboard Viewer icon on the menu. And that’s a shame, as the viewer is a handy way to see exactly what’s on your clipboard.

Windows XP’s Clipboard Viewer is called the “Clipbook Viewer,” and although flawed, it lets you see what’s on your Clipboard. Here’s how to put Windows XP’s Clipbook Viewer onto your Start menu:

  1. Click the Start menu button and open My Computer.
  2. Open your C drive. (It’s listed in the Hard Disk Drives section.)
  3. Double-click on the Windows folder. (You might have to tell it to let you see what’s inside.)
  4. Double-click on the System32 folder. (Again, you might have to tell it to let you see what’s inside.)
  5. Scroll down the page until you locate a file named clipbrd or clipbrd.exe.
  6. Right-click that file and choose “Pin to Start menu.” (Or, drag and drop the clipbrd file onto your Start button. Just let go of your mouse button when the dragged program’s icon points at the Start button.)

When you open your Start menu, the Clipbrd program’s icon will appear near the top.

To put a shortcut to that file on your Desktop,  right-click the Clipbrd file, choose SendTo, and choose Desktop (Create Shortcut).

Whenever you want to see exactly what’s being stored on your Clipboard, double-click on that icon. The Clipbook Viewer will appear, letting you peek at its contents.

Note: Microsoft seems to have stripped the Clipbook Viewer of the advanced features found in older versions. You can’t “stockpile” multiple clips, for instance, or swap clips with networked computers. (The program’s Help menu still says you can do things things, oddly enough.) But if you just want to see what’s on your Clipboard, the stripped-down Clipbook Viewer works fine.

A more technical note: A reader writes this:

“In your writeup titled ‘Where’s the Clipboard Viewer in Windows XP?’ I suggest that you add to it that sometimes the clipbrd file has not been expanded as was my case. I found the file (XP) in directory: I386 named as clipbrd.ex_ I told it to expand clipbrd.ex_ clipbrd.exe and copied the file to the “system32″ directory and followed your suggestion.”

You can access the clipboard via Word and paste the image into a document, but the resulting file is 1.5Mb! Is there no way of getting the image into photo editing software?

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time September 18, 2009 at 10:41 am

Phil, if you can paste an image into a Word document, then there’s nothing stopping you from opening some photo-editing software and pasting the image into that program, as well.

For example, try clicking Edit from the photo-editing software’s menu and choosing Paste. The image should appear in the software as a new image, ready for editing. (No photo-editing software? Then you can use Windows’ built-in program Paint, for lack of anything more full-featured.)

You don’t need to “see” an image on the Clipboard viewer in order to paste it. The viewer is just a handy way to know what’s on your clipboard at different times.

Thanks for info. Appreciated The clipboard is unfortunately only one step up from useless. Not a patch on LOCOSCRIPT on my now defunct Amstrad.. You could store 26 phrases one for each letter of the alphabet and 10 more for the nos 1 to 10. AND they were stored even on shutdown until you chose to replace them. It saved an unbelievable time in not having to type the same phrases such as addresses ove and over again. for instance THANKS FOR YOU TIME AND EFFORT IN HELPING ME WITH MY PROBLEM could be ‘T’. So regards to you Andy or ‘T’ as they say in LOCOSCRIPT

Steve, it sounds like you’re confusing the clipboard with a macro program. The clipboard temporarily stores whatever you’ve cut or copied. As soon as you cut or copy something else, the clipboard’s contents change.

With a macro program, though, you can assign strings of characters — your address, for example — to a certain key combination. Then, whenever you type that key combination, your address will instantly be typed into whatever program you’re using.

You’ll find plenty of macro programs by searching the Internet.

“Dude,” the clipboard’s size is based entirely on your computer’s amount of memory. If you’re seeing memory errors when copying images, you probably need to add more RAM to your PC.

Hi Andy,
Is there a way to route the Print Screen directly to a printer, bypassing the clipboard? I know it’s done at my workplace, but I’d like to do it at home. I think it can be done with 3d party software, but can it be done within XP Pro?

When I access the clipboard viewer I get a message that says “ClipBook Viewer cannot display the information in its current format. To view the information, try pasting it into a document.” What is this about?

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time December 12, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Cam, Windows XP doesn’t let you route the Print Screen key direction to the printer. The screen’s contents always go to the Clipboard, where you can paste it into a program like Paint, and print it from there. To send the contents directly to the printer, try a third-party program. (I haven’t tried any of them, so I can’t give any recommendations.)

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time December 12, 2009 at 2:54 pm

Trudy, that means you’ve copied something to the clipboard viewer that can’t be seen — a clip from a sound file, for example, or a three-dimensional object from a graphics program. To see it, paste the clipboard’s contents into a program able to handle that type of information: a sound editor, for example, could handle the pasted sound clip, or a sophisticated graphics program could handle the 3D object.

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time December 12, 2009 at 3:21 pm

Trudy, you’re seeing the clipboard that comes built-in to Microsoft Office, probably version 2003. That mammoth clipboard holds 24 items simultaneously, and each time you copy or cut an item, the Office Clipboard adds another to its lengthy queue. And, as you’ve noticed, Office proudly tells you of its feat through the little pop-up in the corner of your screen. To turn off those annoying notices, follow these steps:

1. On the Edit menu, click Office Clipboard.
2. On the Clipboard task pane, click Options.
3. Turn off the option, “Show Office Clipboard Icon on Taskbar.”

Thanks for this. I couldn’t find Clipboard Viewer in XP until I Googled, which led me here.

Tangentially, a utility called PC Tools Password Generator will generate random secure passwords, with a button to copy them directly to Clipboard. I used this twice to paste passwords into Mikrotik’s RouterOS which encrypts them. In neither case can I get entry via the password although I know it is correct, having immediately pasted them into my master file also . Do you know if there are any ‘unseen’ control characters in any copy/paste operation which might have been pasted as part of the password?

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time April 3, 2010 at 11:25 am

Tom, I’m don’t know of any “unseen” characters that would be pasted through the clipboard viewer. After all, the clipboard viewer just shows the clipboard’s contents; it shouldn’t change them in any way. Have you tried pasting them into Notepad to see if they’ve changed in some way? I also use a password generator, Password Safe, that copies passwords to the clipboard. They paste into Web sites just fine.

XP SP3 and updates through Jan 09, 4GB memory.

Clipboard viewer reports that the clipboard is not working correctly.

When I hit the Print Screen key, Paint Shop Pro (versions 5, 7, and 9) can’t paste the result. However, I *CAN* paste into Wordpad and Word. If I then copy from WordPad or Word, I can then paste into Paint Shop Pro. It does not matter either way if there is a document open in PSP.

Looking at the clipboard contents through the XP clipboard viewer mentioned in this thread, the “Default” view of the clipboard shows a message:

“ClipBook Viewer cannot display the information in its current format or there is not enough memory to display it. Quit one or more applications to increase the available memory, and then try again”

Task Manager reports 3.4 GB total memory, 2.4GB available, Commit charge 0.9GB, 890MB page fault usage. Clipbook service and the NetDDE services are all three started and running.

When I view the clipbook viewer contents as “Bitmap”, instead of “Default”, I see the expected screenshot, but when I view the contents as “DB Bitmap”, I see the error message shown by the “Default” view.

From this it appears that Word and WordPad access the clipboard contents as a Bitmap, and thus succeed, while PaintShop Pro V.5, 7, and 9 all attempt to access the clipboard contents as a DB Bitmap, and fail under current conditions.

This situation started a month ago, and I cured it by doing a system restore to roughly a week earlier. After about two weeks, the problem has returned, and this time does not go away with a system restore (the system state that cured it earlier is not available).

When I boot into safe mode, the problem goes away.

When I turn off services via MSconfig, the problem goes away.

It would appear that some service or service-dependent code is the culprit, but so far, I have not been able to locate the offending service.

I’ve seen the same symptoms reported on-line in many guises (Paint Shop Pro, Outlook, other packages) without a relevant solution, but no one has yet reported the DB Bitmap connection, and I’m hoping this may help in diagnosing the problem.

Comment from Rich O
Time May 19, 2010 at 6:17 pm

Do you think that the XP clipboard interacts with the Office clipboard? I ask because (sometimes) my clipboard can’t update it’s contents with an image.
It goes like this:
I’ve highlighted a bit of text and used Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard.
{I can see this text in the clipboard viewer}
I use ALT-PrntScrn to capture an image.
{clipboard viewer shows this image}
but when I try to paste the image the contents of the clipboard reverts to the text that I had highlighted previously.
(Actually the clipboard reverts at the moment that I make any window other than the one holding the image active)
Deleting the contents of the clipboard (inside the clipboard viewer) does not help. Neither does killing all windows except the image and the clipboard viewer.

I’m running XP 64 bit SP2, and I have Office 2000 installed.

Comment from Andy Rathbone
Time May 19, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Rich, Microsoft introduced a new clipboard viewer in Office 2000, so Windows XP’s clipboard probably interacts in some way with the Office 2000 clipboard viewer. I’m not sure of the intricacies involved. Office 2000’s Clipboard Viewer stores up to 12 items or 4 MB, whichever comes first. You might find an answer by turning off Office 2000’s clipboard viewer, or by poking around these pages from Microsoft about the Office 2000 clipboard:
