The question is not clearer to me. I think, you are talking about the history of the commands that you've executed. Open the shell and execute the command history

If you did through GUI, I don't think you can get it back :D

sorry - note my apologies - i am not so good in English - so - for me - it is not so easy to describe my problem.

i try to describe my problem again . . .

during my work on my computer - i copied many phrases - (i used right button of my mouse for copy)
and now i need to use these phrases again . . .

please let me know - step by step - what i have to do to get these phrases back?

Is there any chance to get it back from history of copying?

Anyway is possible to get these texts back?

Thanks a lot

So you were using GUI (Graphical User Interface) to copy the data. In my knowledge, I don't think you can retrieve it. If you were using CLI (Command Line Interface), you could get it from your history.

There are programs you can install to keep clipboard history but unless you have done this then its gone sorry.
