When I use Ctrl+C in Word (2003) it opens the clipboard collection basket.

I want it turned off, completely, always.

Is there a way to do it? (I wasn't able to find it)

  1. On the Clipboard task pane, click Options.
  2. Clear the "Show Office Clipboard Automatically" check box.
  3. Clear the "Show Office Clipboard When Ctrl+C Pressed Twice" check box.

Note: To copy items to the Clipboard while it is turned off, select the "Collect Without Showing Office Clipboard" check box.

This doesn't stop it. It stops it from showing. – Mark W Sep 2 '15 at 8:13
