When you select text or an image and you copy them using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + C or via the Edit menu, Copy of the software you're using, the copied item is temporarily stored in the Windows clipboard. You can then retrieve it in another software pasting using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + V or via the Edit menu, Paste.
The problem of the Windows clipboard is that each item that you copy overwrites the previous item. It is therefore not possible to copy / paste multiple items at a time or to retrieve an old item copied. To have the ability to copy multiple images simultaneously and pieces of text into the clipboard, you can use the free PasteCopy.NET which will add many features to the Windows clipboard.
PasteCopy.NET will also enable you to keep or delete the formatting of text copying, organized by category items copied and directly alter the copied text in the clipboard.
