    Default Any way to clear contents of clipboard?

    I use awallet password keeper which unfortunately gives you the option to copy passwords to the clipboard, and which I have accidentally used a couple of times.

    I managed to disable this "feature" on awallet but now want to clear that information off the clipboard, any ideas?

    Start a new text, long press in text entry area, it should give you an option for clipboard. Long press on the items and select delete should work.

    Default Re: Any way to clear contents of clipboard on Galaxy S 3?

    This is very frustrating. So far, nobody has posted a solution that works. I need to clear the clipboard, plain and simple. Something is on the clipboard. I want the clipboard to be blank. That is, if I hold my finger on the screen, I don't want the "Paste" to appear, meaning something is still on the clipboard. Is there no way to just clear the clipboard? I've tried holding on a blank space, but you are not given the option, then, to copy nothing, obviously. If you know how to clear the clipboard, please help me out, here. I'm on a Galaxy S 3.

    The standard clipboard only has one slot--just copy something else and the original is gone. Or look on Google Play for an app called Clipper or Clipper Plus. It allows you to have multiple items and choose which one to paste AND it DOES allow you to delete all entries.

    In a text message, email, or wherever you can pull up your keyboard, press and hold the microphone. You will see 4 icons: mic, handwriting, clipboard, and settings. Click on the clipboard and delete all.

    On your keyboard tap & hold d message box get d clipboard. Go to each message on your clipboard & tap hold each message. A box will pop with choices of what u want to do with d message. Choose delete d message. You repeat this with each message.

    I will try to explain as you know nothing and that is the problem here people remember when people ask for help is because they do not know and
    not one has mentioned one needs to push the blimking cursor on the text field, but do like this:
    start a sms, after that you need to put 1 letter in the text field for the options Paste / Clipboard just write like
    an a any letter, then you press on the blinking cursor this will give you 2 options, Paste or Clipboard, choose clipboard
    then all the saved stuff will pop up and you can delete them one by one by long time press on each text, pic what ever you got in the memory.

    Hope this helps mate..

    It doesn't work with Handsent. You will not get the clipboard option. You can get to the clipboard in Memo, but you can't delete pictures of the clipboard, only text. .....at least with a S2 Skyrocket running 4.04. I had to use Messaging to make the deletions. There was a ton of stuff on there that I didn't even know about. Hopefully there will be a way to clear the whole clipboard all at once.

    Hi there, I've lost my clipboard on my s3!!! when I touch "clipboard" on the screen nothing happens?? How can I restore my clipboard???

    To delete anything from clipboard, go to the messaging (because there you are able to paste any kind of file), hold you finger on the text entry bar and select clipboard, now hold your finger on the file or text you want to delete, and just simply select the "Delete from clipboard" Tadaa!

    Will a reboot (power down and restart) clear the clipboard, or is that data stored on the internal SD card?

    You have to go open up a text, hold down on so clipboard will pop up, than hold down on pic/text and it should pop up to delete it...i could only delete pics this way...and samsung galaxy holds more than one item in the clipboard f.y.i for the ppl saying just copy something else

    Default Re: Any way to clear contents of clipboard?

    On my charge, I could "copy and paste" , "copy and paste" etc - on my Galaxy S4, I copy and paste but the next time I want to copy something I "long press" or whatever to get my test selected, but then I can't "copy" until I clear the clipboard.. Then I can "copy" again - but this happens every time - or maybe now I see that after 20 items or something - and I did just follow someone's advice to clear it all - but can I make it only save one "copy" at a time so I can go back to "copy and paste" , "copy and paste" and never have to clear? Also - while I'm asking - in emails I have trouble getting able to select all or parts of a message... some places it highlights what it wants - but at least I can "select all" and then do copy - is there any chance of "dragging" your finger to highlight an amount of txt?? Thanks much

    I'm not quite sure what you're getting at - a "Copy" action is normally followed by a "Paste" action. In some instances you'll also see the Clipboard, in which case you can pick the item from the clipboard that you want to paste (or you can clear the whole clipboard).
    As far as selecting text that you want to copy - if you long-press on some text you'll usually get a set of markers that show up. At that point you can drag each marker to the beginning and end of the block that you want to copy/cut, and once you select the appropriate action you can then long-press in an empty space to bring up the "Paste" selection.Any way to clear contents of clipboard?-uploadfromtaptalk1376731369805.jpgSent from my rooted, debloated, deodexed Sinclair ZX-80 running CM -0.001 using Tapatalk 2

    You can usually manage the clipboard from the dialpad. Press and hold the number entry screen and you'll get paste/clipboard. Click clipboard and you can clear all from there. It's easiest for me to do things that way just because the dialpad is easily accessible and easy to remember. Other apps and I'm assuming most stock apps will allow you to access the clipboard as well, but--obviously--not all.

    GSder - DUH - Thank you! - those "markers" on new to me on this OS and it never dawned on me that I could drag them.. so totally "duh" and THANK YOU! Ray Maybry - Thank you also - I don't have a problem clearing the clipboard - but also that's not something I ever had to do w/my prev android os.. it would only store the most recent thing I copied I guess - pretty much like my computer (windows) does... but on the 4.2.2 I have to clear it each time - although maybe not until it fills up 20 or something - I found a place last night to clear the whole thing (I forget how - so thanks for your suggestion) - but I wish I could make it never store more than the most recentl thing I copied so I would never have to clear it.. If I can, great - if not - thanks for an easy way to clear it..
