Clipboard

Clipboard: Area on a computer where any information copied or cut is stored. Generally anything cut from one area in a program or operating system can then be pasted into another, provided that it remains in the clipboard. For audio or video data to be pasted from a cut or copy, the program that is receiving the sound or video file must be able to handle sound or video data from the clipboard.
