I encountered strange clipboard problems as a result of fiddling with
the Clipboard Settings in Win10.

When I turned on "Sync across devices", after a "Copy to clipboard"
operation, sometimes the "Paste from clipboard" operation pasted
nothing or the previous clipboard content. A few moments later,
another "Paste" would paste the content of the most recent "Copy". It
seems as though the content of the clipboard was not updated after a
Copy operation until a Sync to cloud was performed, with the timing
being dependant on WiFi, internet and cloud speeds and latency.

I did not observe any difference in "Drag and Drop" behaviour with
this setting, but I almost exclusively use keyboard Copy and Paste
instead of mouse Drop and Drag.
