Windows – How to restore copy/paste functionality for the remote desktop connection

clipboardcopy/pasteremote desktopwindowswindows 7

My question has been asked on superuser before, but the accepted answer did not work for me.

Sometimes when using remote desktop on my Windows 7 computer, the copy-paste functionality between the remote desktop and my computer suddenly stops working. How can I restore it?

I have looked at
Fixing copy/paste for Remote Desktop Connection sessions
and SQLAuthority News – Fix : Remote Desktop Copy Paste Stop Working

But killing and restarting rdpclip doesn't seem to work for me. How can I fix this?

This is driving me a bit crazy. Restarting the computer or the remote desktop connection doesn't work either. Anyone have any ideas?

You can run the following commands on your remote machine one by one.

Taskkill.exe /im rdpclip.exe

This is a temporary fix, alternately you can use an online copy paste tool.
