    I'm unable to find my clipboard on Word for copied text and pictures. I have the latest version from play store on my tablet. All the sites and videos just show the clipboard as being just right there, but on mine it isn't. How can I use it? Even the normal clipboard when I type won't pop up.

    You're using the clipboard to copy/paste? Why not do so in the traditional way? Press and hold and tap copy then press and hold again and tap paste

    Can you possibly send a screenshot of the version of Word that you are using?

    Sounds like he's using the app. The OP said he had, "[the]latest version from play store on my tablet."
    But a screenshot would still help.

    Press and hold and options will pop up. Either copy or paste from those options.

    Paste/Clipboard is grayed out which is right of copy.

    Try Universal Copy app. It allows you to copy virtually any text on your apps and websites. Then you don't have to struggle with copy in MW. It's what I use.

    I believe you are trying to copy something that cannot be embedded in the document; hence word is preventing you from doing something that would crash it.

    If it is an image, you will need to insert it as an image, rather than copying it from your file explorer.

    This is just an assumption, mind, I've never used a tablet version of Word.

    This was just an example to show OP, the reason why it was grayed out is because Microsoft Word phone/tabley version only allows to edit if you are logged in and I was not.
