How do I access clipboard in Windows 10?

Once I figure out how to once again utilize Clipboard...My main objective is to be able to once again Print Screen and copy to Paint or Photoshop.  Seems that function is no longer easy since transition from Windows 7 to 10.

A new feature in windows 8 and later  directly saves the screenshot to Pictures>Screenshots.

Just press Win Key+PrtScn and your PNG would be saved to location mentioned above.

Use in Paint by directly copying the image from the folder.

hope it helps.

Clipboard and Clipboard plus are available at Windows 10 "Store"  for free. Download them from there if you like those Apps. ~smiles~ Sumit is absolutely correct however and just posting another option here

Thanks much.  The change from my old process is using WinKey>PrtScr in WIN10 versus CTRL>PrtScr.  Works fine.  Just another thing changed and that makes the old dog cranky.

I was able to deduce that on my own; what I don't know is what you mean by "bring up" the clipboard.

You (or anyone reading this) might try the Windows "Snipping Tool". Just press the Windows Buttton and type in "Snipping Tool" and you'll see that Windows has an own program which helps you to create Fullscreen, automated or manual window sized printscreens, so you can copy, edit (e.g. with a red circle or arrow) and save the image as GIF, PNG or JPG. I love this little feature, it's simple and works perfectly.
