Sometimes, something really odd happens when using our computers that makes no sense at all…such as copying a simple image to the clipboard and the computer freezing up because of it. An image is an image, right? Today’s SuperUser post has the answer to a puzzled reader’s dilemna.
Since copying it to the clipboard automatically makes the object/picture large in size, there's a slower but safer way; download it first? Btw, the clipboard is in Random Access Memory right? Sometimes I wonder why cant we just integrate file storage as RAM. haha. a laugh there.
