Remote Desktop Clipboard Not Working? – Just restart rdpclip

This one’s been bugging me for years.  You know the situation, you’re happily using a remote desktop connection, and all of a sudden the clipboard stops working for no apparent reason.

I recently stumbled across a ‘fix’ for this.  It’s more of a workaround than a fix, as you’ll need to do it every time the clipboard disappears.

Just look for a process named rdpclip.exe on the machine you’re remoting to, and kill it, then restart it.

You should find you’re able to copy/paste again.
