Clipboard has gone away

Some easy points here probably.

XP Pro - where's my Clipboard? Used to be under Accessories, but it's flown the coup. How can I add it back to the program list...

Thanks,

The Clipboard viewer is already installed, it's just disappeared from the program listings...

Sean,

I had the same problem, but I used this tip to fix.  :)


Thanks to Andy Rathbone for this tip:

Windows XP's Clipboard Viewer is called the "Clipbook Viewer," and it offers some additional features that are fun to play with. Here's how to put the "new" Clipbook Viewer onto your Start menu.

Click the Start menu button and open My Computer.
Open your C drive. (It's listed in the Hard Disk Drives section.)
Double-click on the Windows folder. (You might have to tell it to let you see what's inside.)
Double-click on the System32 folder. (Again, you might have to tell it to let you see what's inside.)
Scroll down the page until you locate a file named Clipbrd.
Drag and drop the Clipbrd file onto your Start button.
Just let go of your mouse button when it's pointing at the Start button; that drops a shortcut to the Clipbook Viewer onto your Start menu. When you open your Start menu, the Clipbrd program's icon will appear near the top.

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 peer inside its contents.

Hope this works.

BTW:  I just placed the exe on my desktop.  Makes it easy to access.
