if you're looking for something that stores everything that was made via "Copy", then i don't think that functionality exists in WinXP. however there are some program that can do this.

Fortunately. I found an answer. Its in the Windows/System 32 folder in the C drive and its called clipbrd.exe You just pin it in in the start menu or run this command in the start menu by going to run.

C:/windows/system32/clipbrd.exe

If you go to start>run> and type in clipbrd.exe it allows you to see whats in the clip board. Thats pretty much all it does though.
