Microsoft SwiftKey now allows you to sync your clipboard between Android devices and Windows PCs. The functionality has been in beta testing since August 2021 but recently rolled out to the non-preview version of SwiftKey on Android. To sync your clipboard between Android and Windows, you need to sign in to your Microsoft account on both types of devices and enable the feature.
There are other ways to sync your clipboard between Android and Windows, including several third-party apps. Using SwiftKey to sync across Android and Windows may be a bit easier for many. It requires a few steps to set up but is generally straightforward. It's also a natural pairing to have your keyboard from your Android device handle syncing your clipboard.

- Open SwiftKey.
- Select Rich Input.
- Select clipboard.
- Toggle the option to Sync clipboard history.
On your PC:
- Open Settings.
- Select System.
- Select Clipboard.
