    Someone told me before that everything you copy is stored in a file and that anyone can view what you copied and pasted by opening that file. I was wondering if this rumor was true or false? Thanks!

    Start > Programs > Accessories > Syestem tools > Clipboard

    That's about the closest thing I can think of, it stores the text you've recently copied and possibly other items such as images? I don't think I've ever really used it properly. It doesn't appear to be currently installed on my system for whatever reason, but I remember seeing in the past.

    However it's likely this would be emptied every time you close down your computer/log out etc.

    Only recently stored stuff and you can delete them from it anyway. It's just for re-use, but I never use it.

    So don't worry, all them dirty URLs you copied are safe

    The Clipboard is not currently installed on my pc. I guess I'll install it and check it out.

    I don't think I'm using it properly either. Is it possible that it knows everything you copied even if it isn't running? Say someone is on my personaly computer and they copy and paste items. Can the ClipBoard(or ClipBook on Windows 2K)get whatever they copied and let me view what they copied?

    The clipboard operates as a service (I believe), not as a constantly running process. Nothing you copy is stored in a file unless you copy it into a file yourself.
