    Sometimes the phone will say copied to clipboard... Where do I find this?

    The clipboard isn't really a place, so much as it is a state. In other words, is a temporary holding status that allows you to "paste" into another location such as document. Think "cut and paste", where when you "cut" text, it's being held in the "clipboard" until you either "paste" it somewhere else, or until you "cut" something else, at which time what is in the "clipboard" is then either deleted or replaced.

    In a desktop PC, the clipboard is a collection of "clippings" that can be used to paste from at a later time and can be many separate items of either related or unrelated clippings. You have far more control of the clipboard in a desktop PC, and you are limited to only one clipping at a time on the phone.

    That answer was so cogent and concise that I thought, "Wait, there *must* be some kind of clipboard management app," and a quick search revealed:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.rojekti.clipper

    Looks like a decent app, and there are apparently some good alternatives. :)

    Excellent deduction Watson (gadgetrants)! I was going to go there, but I figured someone else would. You've not let either me or the other members down. Bravo!

    I'd bow if I could, but I'd just end up hitting my head on the keyboard and impressing nobody. Or wait...

    ...no, that's not what I meant...
