PowerShell Quick Tip: Sending things to the clipboard

If you have a variable that you’d like to grab the value of and put it into the clipboard, the easiest way to do this is to pipe it to the built-in clip.exe

For example:

$env:Path | clip

The above will result in the contents of the ‘path’ environment variable being put into the clipboard.
