What is clipboard and why it is used.

In an operating system environment, any written words, letters and images can easily be copied and pasted from one page to others or on the same page. During this process, copied data is temporarily saved on a location in RAM. That temporary memory space is called clipboard.

Data on the clipboard can be used repeatedly to paste the copied data into any application which can accept that data. Windows operating system allows creating multiple clipboard locations to store copied data from different applications.
