Accessing Clipboard in PowerPoint
By Ryan Menezes
You can paste the contents of the Windows clipboard onto a PowerPoint slide at any time by using the "Ctrl-V" shortcut. But PowerPoint also has its own clipboard that stores more content than the default one. PowerPoint's clipboard stores the last 24 items that you copied from within the program, letting you quickly paste any of them. For example, if you must often insert your company logo and slogan on different slides, you can paste them from the PowerPoint clipboard without copying each repeatedly.
Click "Home" in the PowerPoint ribbon.
Hover the mouse pointer over the icon in the lower right corner of the ribbon's Clipboard group to reveal a panel labeled "Show the Office Clipboard Task pane."
Click to open the Clipboard pane on the left side of the window.
Click an item in the clipboard to paste it to your slide.
