When I call up the Windows 10 clipboard history (Windows + V), it consistently displays at some unwanted location on my screen. And I can't drag it to a corner or choose a default position. How do I move it to a location of my choice? Here are two examples.

Yes I did toggle the setting on and off but that was unsuccessful. I just received a text from a computer savvy friend of mine and he wrote: It defaults placing it where you have an input field, I don't believe the placement is user definable.

Pendragon, when you said yours moves fine, does that mean you are able to drag it on the screen?

i can move it all over. it first popped up in the lower right but i moved it up to be side by side yours. try minimizing the browser and then pull it up.

Thank you! I think you put your finger on my issue. I always have my browser window maximized. I'm out shopping now, when I get home I'm going to do what you advised.

Pendragon, unfortunately your suggestion did not work. :(

No matter what I do there is no way to move the Windows Clipboard History window around on my screen. I believe the reason why you can, and I cannot, is because you and I appear to be running a different clipboard - which is why your clipboard with all the icons near the top, looks different than mine.:)

I don't understand what you are referring to. Are you asking what version of Windows I am running?
Am running Windows 10 Pro
Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.985)
yes thats what i was asking. i run the insider preview versions. try updating to 21h1. thats when mine got all fancy looking.

Done, I'm now running Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1.
But I don't have the fancy, feature enhanced, movable clipboard you have.
Your current or recent Insider Preview version must have enabled it.

Looks like I'll have to wait for Windows to release it in a future update.
Thanks for all your time and effort in assisting me! ✌️
