Can I create a shortcut (on my desktop) that does the same thing as pressing the WIN + V keys ?

WIn 10 Home
Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1320)

I want to begin using the Win 10 clipboard.
But I will never remeber to press the WIN + V keys to display it. (I can't remeber where I put my car keys.)

So, I would like to create a shortcut on the desktop named something like "Win 10 Clipboard" that when clicked, will, bring up the win 10 clipboard.

It this possible ?
If so, how would I do such a thing ?

Thanks

I can't seem to find any native solution to open the old clipboard viewer.

I suspect it might require either an App from the Microsoft Store or else some third party software product to get the job done.

Just out of curiosity.... What's the problem with using WinKey + V
Seems pretty quick and easy to me.

Your time and efforts on my behalf are greatly appreciated.
Much obliged.

These days, one can find almost anything on the Internet.
But NOT what I am wanting to do.
Which supports your posts content.

But as to remembering the key sequence, well, not so much.

Here's a list of Windows shortcuts, from Windows Central.

Scroll down through the list and you will find quite a few key sequences to remeber.

My wife and I are what you might consider Perennials or Third age.
Accoringly, anything that I can do to mke things a bit easier on the computer for the both of us, I try to do.

Like attempting to create an appropriately named shortcut on the desktop rather than remembering "WIN + V".

Thanks again for your reply.


By the way.
I LIKE your statement at the bottom of your post.
As for me, Vietnam 1967 - 1972.

You're welcome. Just sorry I couldn't find a remedy.

Been there, done that, own the T-shirt.... 72 myself.

Thank You.
Did something similar myself.
U.S. Army 68 to 71
Fortunately I was able to avoid Vietnam as my MOS was not applicable in country.
Instead did a year in South Korea, which was not exactly a walk in the park, still preferable over that particular alternative.
