Paste as Plain Text from Clipboard History in Windows 11

When you copy something on your Windows PC, it’s automatically copied to your clipboard for you to paste.

Clipboard History in Windows 10 and Windows 11 lets you save multiple items to your clipboard.

Clipboard history also allows you to copy images and text from one PC to another with a cloud-based clipboard. Not only can you can paste from your clipboard history, but you can also pin the items you tend to use all the time and sync your clipboard history to the cloud.

Often you can press the Ctrl+Shift+V keys instead of Ctrl+V to paste any copied text as plain text without any formatting included. Not all apps support using Ctrl+Shift+V though.

When you use the Paste as plain text option on any text-based item in your clipboard history, it pastes the text content of the clipboard without its original formatting (font, color, size etc.), allowing it to match the formatting of the destination document.

This tutorial will show you how to paste as plain text from any text-based entry in your clipboard history in Windows 11.
