I have been
testing the Clipboard History feature of Windows 10 using NVDA
and have achieved mixed results. I can traverse the list of
clipboard items with up/down arrows but the enter key, has
caused me problems.
When located on a particular item in the
clipboard items list, pressing enter pastes in the requisite
item but causes focus issues in the test Notepad document I am
using and when I use NVDA+t to identify which document I am
in, NVDA gives audio feedback about braille tethering, so I
think there may be some compatibility issues here. Repeated
presses of NVDA+t seems to cycle around the Braille tethering
options. I do not have a Braille device connected to my
machine. Flipping focus between open apps eventually restores
I could not get the tab key to open any
menus asociated with the Clipboard History list, the only menu
I could get was a context menu using the Applications key and
this had many options, mostly unavailable, delete being one of
them however, Pressing the delete key whilst a particular list
item is in focus, will remove it from the list.
I could not determine a way to move between
the document and the Clipboard History window to paste in
several clipboard items, other than by using Windows+v each
time, neither could I select more than one clipboard item at a
time for pasting.
I found that the most reliable way of
pasting items from the Clipboard History list into your target
document is to highlight an item using the arrow keys, then
press the spacebar to paste it. Focus returns to your target
document after these keystrokes.
I think there may be compatibility issues
with the ClipSpeak add-on as well. When pasting several items
from the Clipboard History list, I found that ClipSpeak was
only announcing every other item as "Pasted text" but the
strange thing was that the items that were not announced were
pasted successfully and those announced, failed to paste into
the target document. After disabling Clipspeak, I was able to
use the spacebar to paste items consistently.

When I copy things to the clipboard and
then press windows + V it says the first item in the
clipboard history but I can't figure out how to access the
list of the history.
Up/Down arrow moves you through the items on the clipboard.
Enter pastes the one you have focus on.
If you wish to remove an item from Clipboard History, when you
have focus on it hit Tab, activate the menu, and choose the
