In XP I can run "clipbrd" or something and it will open a small program that contains the contents of the clipboard.

I would like to do this in Vista, but not really sure where it is or what it is called. I have googled around and most of the answers have been to "download it from the internet", "just ctrl+V and you will see it", or "it comes with microsoft office word as clip.exe"

Is there a vista equivalent of XP's "clipbrd" utility in one of the system folders?

In Vista there isn't the clipboard viewer, but you can still use a workaround.

Free Clipboard Viewer is an userful utility to see the content of the clipboard.
