How to sync your clipboard between Windows and Android

Windows 10 has the ability to sync your clipboard with other devices . SwiftKey, a popular keyboard app for Android, uses this feature to sync your clipboard to your phone and PC. It is very useful to have it.

How Clipboard Synchronization Works

What does it mean to “sync” your clipboard between Windows and Android? Imagine that you copy text on your Android device, now you can go to your PC and press Ctrl + V to paste exactly that into Windows. This can save you a lot of time in certain situations.

First, enable clipboard sync in Windows 10

To get started with this feature, you will need to enable clipboard sync on your Windows PC. To do so, go to Settings> System> Clipboard. Activate “Synchronize across all devices”.

Active

On that same page, scroll down a bit more and choose “Automatically sync the text I copy.” This will ensure that it syncs without any additional work on your part.

Next, you need to log into SwiftKey with the same Microsoft account that you use on your Windows PC. Tap “Account” at the top of Settings.
