How to copy Powershell data to Clipboard

02 November,2021 by Tom Collins

Question: Is there a Powershell method of passing data to the Windows Clipboard ?   The aim is to extract data and then simply Ctl + V into an Excel spreadsheet . 

 

Answer: It is possible to pass output on a Powershell gui into the Clipboatrd , using the Clip keyword.

This is an example of extracting the Computer Information using the Get-ComputerInfo powershell cmdlet , and instead of displaying on the Powershell GUI , the output is passed onto the Clipboard.   

Once the output is in the Clipboard - than Ctl + V into the target program . 

 

    Get-ComputerInfo | Clip
