Thanks Bob and contributors.

Win+X is really useful (e.g. saves opening my icon for Command Prompt with a right-click to get open as administrator).

But, with W10 ver.20H2, I get no result with
- night
- Wkey + Shift S
- Wkey + H

And @Jeri & @bb: no luck with CTRL+V or -V either, which is irritating. Thanks for trying to help.

Like if you go to the Windows10 TaskBar and click on the Magnifier icon and then Search for (type) the word "clipboard" and (hopefully) one of the results 'should' lead you to "Windows Clipboard" Settings (upgraded in 2020/10 Win10 update): Where you can "Save multiple items to the clipboard for later use." and even "Sync" local clipboard content to your "other devices" (w/potential security implications). Now then, in order to be able "Paste (Ctrl+V)" something somewhere; You must FIRST "Copy (Ctrl+C)" that 'something' (after highlighting it) into the ClipBoard. Personally, I have been using ClipCache replacement for the built-in ClipBoard for too long to change my ways. My usage reserves keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+C and Ctrl+Alt+V for ClipCache Copy and Paste commands.
MicroSoft Support states the following: ”Depending on your hardware, you may use the Windows Logo Key + PrtScn button as a shortcut for print screen. If your device does not have the PrtScn button, you may use Fn + Windows logo key + Space Bar to take a screenshot, which can then be printed."

When monitors were not as large as now, I was a lost soul with a lost mouse pointer. About 15 years ago, I was lucky enough to chance upon the “Rainbow Cursor Pack” which is an animated set of cursors (15+ used in Windows). With every new computer since those days, one of the first things I would do is to manually replace each default cursor with these color-changing (24 frame ANI) versions and haven’t been lost since… I just found out the “Rainbow Cursors” download has been available at the website (“Rainbow-Cursors-32642224”) and now includes an installer as a part of the package (but requires site registration). There is even a youtube how-to tut for it.
