In Windows, there’s no Show Clipboard command, as there is on the Macintosh; however, the Clipboard Viewer performs the same function. In Windows 98, it’s accessible at Start ➝ Programs ➝ Accessories ➝ System Tools ➝ Clipboard Viewer. In Windows 95, you may have to install it from Control Panel ➝ Add/Remove Programs ➝ Windows Setup ➝ Accessories ➝ Clipboard Viewer, after which it appears in Start ➝ Programs ➝ Accessories ➝ Clipboard Viewer. Clipping Files In Windows: Scraps In many Macintosh programs, you can drag selected text or graphics out of the original window and onto the Desktop.

You can right-click objects on the Windows Desktop to summon a contextual menu, much like the one that appears when you Control-click the Macintosh Desktop. On the other hand, the two Desktops are also different in subtle ways. • • When you insert a disk or CD of any kind, you’re used to seeing its icon appear on your Macintosh Desktop. In Windows, no icon appears; you must open the My Computer icon on your Desktop to access your disk drives. See Disk Space for more information.
