Despite Windows being 30 years old, Microsoft still hasn't improved on the basic clipboard functionality that was introduced in the 1980s. You cut or copy something, and then you paste it somewhere else. Cut or copy again, and the single entry in the clipboard gets overwritten.
Clip Angel changes that, and does it very well. You'll find it at https://sourceforge.net/projects/clip-angel/ and it's a 2 MB download. VirusTotal claims it's free of malware, and Web of Trust regards the site as reputable.
Once you've installed (or not - there's a portable option too) Clip Angel, you can add multiple items to your clipboard. Scroll through the entries to find the one you want, then hit Enter to paste it. You can even edit the entry before you paste. And you can paste text into the CMD.EXE command line too, if you are a command prompt user.
Clip Angel is useful, and free. Definitely worth trying out.
Note that the program's author is Russian, so when you first install it you'll find 2 demo items of text in your clipboard, one of which says "This is my first clip" in Russian. If you're not a speaker of that language, just hit Delete to remove it.
