Adding a Scrap to Your Desktop

You can keep the contents of the clipboard on your desktop for later reference by creating what is called a scrap.

Though this name implies something cheap, frayed, and disposable, the scraps you create on your desktop could very well be among the most valuable bits of data on your computer.

You can recognize a scrap by its icon: It looks like a document file except for a torn edge along the bottom.

You can create a scrap in a couple of ways. If you have material copied to the clipboard, you can right-click on the desktop and select Paste to create a scrap containing the clipboard information.

The other way to create a scrap is to select data and drag it to the desktop in any program that supports Microsoft's OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) standard.
