    Just asking... is Clipboard Sync working, broken, or not implemented yet?
    I'm currently on build 18895, but I've never been able to get Clipboard Sync to work

    All my Clipboard settings are "on", all my PCs are using the same MSA
    I can see my local clipboard content only (Win + V), new Clipboard content says it's sync'd, but I don't see Clipboard content from my other PCs

    More info...

    After several clean installs, fiddling with Firewalls etc, I've eventually narrowed the (non-syncing) problem down to my Microsoft Account
    (I created a new Microsoft account, and using it, the Clipboard now syncs OK)

    Obviously though, for several reasons, I don't want to run with a new MS account - I want to repair my broken account
    (I tried an online session with MS, and they couldn't/wouldn't fix my MSA, blaming it on running Insider builds)

    Any suggestions ?

    I have one suggestion, save yourself a lot of aggravation and stop trying to depend on Microsoft services like this that they keep breaking every few months.
    I don't know what you would replace the clipboard sync with, but as long as it's not by Microsoft it has to work better.
