Clear your computer's clipboard

Clear your computer's clipboard: Monday Productivity Pointers
Clear your computer's clipboard: Monday Productivity Pointers

When copying text to paste into another location, the copied text stays in your computer’s clipboard indefinitely, until you copy something else. This is convenient, but it can also be a liability in some cases, especially if you’ve copied and pasted sensitive information. Anyone else using on your computer just needs to use the paste command to see that information. Also, if you’ve copied an extremely large amount of text, it can potentially and unnecessarily take up your computer’s. This video shows you how to create scripts on both Macs and PCs to automatically clear your clipboard at any time.

Q: Why can't I earn a Certificate of Completion for this course?

A: We publish a new tutorial or tutorials for this course on a regular basis. We are unable to offer a Certificate of Completion because it is an ever-evolving course that is not designed to be completed. Check back often for new movies.
