The clipboard in mac isn't viewable without an application like Windows Clipboard Viewer. One Option for you might be iClip Light Dashboard Widget. Might be a bit overblown for your needs, but it might just be useful for you if your someone who works a lot with the clipboard. iClip full version is a good piece of software, too.

Hey thanks.

So what happens when you take a photo of a window/page to clipboard. Does it also go to the desktop?

After a bit of playing around, here's your answer:
cmd-shift-3 takes the whole screen, svaes it to the desktop (Doesn't go to the clipboard)
cmd-shift-4 lets you select an area on the screen, and saves it.

cmd-ctrl-shift-3 takes the whole screen, and copies it to clipboard.
cmd-ctrl-shift-4 allows you to select an area on screen to copy to clipboard.

In the Finder, go to Show Clipboard, under Edit.

Copy something else to delete it.
Paste it into a text document to edit it.

You use Command-C to Copy and Command-V to Paste, New Copies will replace the data in Clipboard.

Seeing as this thread has been revived from the dead, in case anyone's interested in creating multiple clipboards for copying and pasting, check out Clip Doubler. It's freeware from Northern Softworks.
Whenever you copy, Clip Doubler creates a new clipboard. This way you can refer back to previous clipboards without having to resort to opening multiple documents. Cheers!

I'm just getting to know my MacBook and I'm all tangled up in a remotedesktop-session on a windows-computer (yes, I know: it's a bit much all at once ;-))

So; I've tried to save a printscreen to the clipboard (made in the RD-session). Thnx to your advices, I can see in Finder that I really did! Yeeeeeh!!!! :-)

Next: I want to paste my image into a Word-doc in the RD-session. And usually I can use CTRL-V or CMND-V, but now neither is working... :-(

Hope you guys can help me out. Any magic combination I can use to make this happen?

Greetings from a helpless MacNewbie
