The clipboard operation on Android can change quite significantly from version to version. In the simplest case, it works similar to Windows:
In this case, when copying, the contents of the buffer, if there was something already there, is replaced with a fresh one. The format of the content can be not only text, but also graphic.
Sometimes you can use the last few copy results. To do this, in the Settings you need to look for the item "Clipboard". If not, you can install the Clipper app.
The data itself is stored at the following location: Android - Data - Clipboard , but it is only available on a rooted system.
More details about the Android clipboard can be found here .
Open any application with an input field, for example SMS. Press to activate the keyboard on the input field 1 time, then hold your finger on it until the "paste" / "clipboard" menu appears. If the phone showed only "Paste", then there is no direct access to the clipboard and you need to get root rights to open the Android / data / clipboard file in memory (this is the clipboard). But there is an easier way - install Clipper from the market to manage your clipboard.
