One handy feature of Microsoft Word you may not know about is the Word Clipboard. The Word clipboard can hold up to 24 items, making it easy to save texts and images and place them anywhere you want in your document.

Here’s how it works. Any text or images you copy while using Word will be stored on the clipboard, up to 24 separate items. To access the clipboard click the Home tab at the top-left of Word.

You’ll find the clipboard just under Format Painter. Click the little arrow.

You’ll see a list of everything you’ve copied while Word was open. You can paste all or any of the items in whatever order you please.
