QuoteBy default, Windows will now store every clipboard copy and cut in a history file and bring them back up in this box when you press Windows-Key V.
Quote...the clipboard is not cleared when your computer goes to sleep and wakes back up. If you're in the habit of closing the lid on your laptop and letting others open it back up and use the machine without logging into their own account, then they're going to have access to your clipboard history if you ever enabled the feature.

And that sure makes sense as it would be a serious security issue otherwise, for example, if a user copied several passwords from their password manager that were then saved in a history file others could access.....
