When going through the options available on my keyboard, found a section which references "Clipboard".

enter image description here

In specific places, like in Stack Overflow's question box we can se from the opacity that's not active.

I would like the opportunity to use it anytime I wanted, not just when in particular locations like Google Keep.

  • I would assume that this button is only for pasting from clipboard, hence it gets active if you copy something to the clipboard. Long pressing a text section usually opens a small menu for copy to clipboard. The address bar also has a copy functionality, usually there is a special button to to so in the share menu.

  • @Robert I have many things copied to the clipboard (things i simply selected and clicked "copy") and that's still inactive Oct 7 '20 at 7:55
  • What keyboard app do you use? (if it is not GBoard please also provide the PlayStore link)

    @beeshyams just edited the question, it was misleading but got clarified while commenting with Robert Oct 7 '20 at 10:50

The way I've fixed it was to change the keyboard from Samsung Keyboard to Gboard and now got a Clipboard icon always active

And can use anywhere just fine
