    I know this may sound a bit crazy! But I was wondering , when using the
    " COPY " Feature on the Toolbar , is there anyway to or anything I can do to
    see what I have Copied , or that will show what is the active item in the
    "Copy Feature"! The reason I'm asking , is because sometimes I can't remember
    what I have "Copied".

    Doe's the application you are using have an "undo" function? If it does,
    just paste the clipboard contents to your document and "undo" the paste
    if the added content isn't what you want to add to the document.

    As a suggestion, you might try a third-party clipboard extension
    application, such as YC3 (Yankee Clipper III), it's free:

    If you do a search you'll find many more.

    You could:

    - make a shortcut to Clipbrd.exe and open it to see the contents.
    - make a shortcut to Clipbrd.exe and add it to the right-click context
    menu. Then right-click and click Clipboard to see the details.
    - paste it somewhere to see it, then press Ctrl/Z to undo the Paste
    operation.
    - get a program like Clipboard Magic. It keeps everything you copy or
    cut, unless you turn that feature off. It runs in the tray area so you
    can click it to see recently stored content, press Delete key or icon to
    delete unwanted text.
