How do I get to my clipboard on a Chromebook?

I just took a screen shot I really want to keep. It saved to my clipboard. Where the heck is that?

Thanks.

1. I think Chrome OS saves screen capture images in the Downloads folder.

3. Thank you

That doesn't quite accurately describe what I'm seeing in my settings. I think the thing I want to save has a url. Maybe if I e-mail that to myself I can pick it up on my other computer that will allow me to do what I want.

It's a confirmation for my covid shot, and I really want to print that for my appointment in case there's any kind of mix-up.

5. I edited my post right as you were replying to add a more recent link.

If I had access to a Chromebook, I might be more helpful. Good luck!

ETA: does the url start with file? Something like this:

file:///home/chronos/user/Downloads/

If so, that points to the folder on your Chromebook where the file is located. If it starts with http then your screen captures must be saved to a cloud account (probably GoogleDrive) automatically.

2. Chrome OS doesn't have an accessible clpiboard

But you can download an app for that.

4. It says it saved to a clipboard

What's the point of having one if it's not accessible?

6. Try opening a graphic app

And Control V to paste what's on the clipboard.
