    As everybody knows, when you want to copy on Windows you press Ctrl-C and when you want to paste you press Ctrl-V.

    How can someone copy more 5 different things, for example and still be able to paste those 5 different things at different times?

    I've tried looking in the Internet, but I couldn't find it. I've also tried Ctrl-C 1 Ctrl-C 2, but to no avail.

    Short answer: You can't.

    I found a link to some external programs letting you do this here though.

    There is a way to do it with Office. I had thought you could do it with just Windows too but I guess not.

    I think ing msWord there is a way, it's got a clipboard with multiple entries that is really annoying when your doing school work in the schol library.

    Thanks jameson, there are a lot of programs that deal with this issue. I will try to find the best one.

    The clipboard tip is also very useful, I try to get that up and running th e next time I use Excel.

    I know you can use Drag Thing on a Mac. Not sure if there is a PC version of equivlant (I'm not even sure if this is free, as I haven't had too much need to download it, but I presume it is).
