Set-Clipboard

Set the current Windows clipboard entry.

Syntax
      Set-Clipboard [-Append] [-AsHtml] [-Confirm] -LiteralPath String[] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters]

      Set-Clipboard [-Append] [-AsHtml] [-Confirm] -Path String[] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters]

      Set-Clipboard [-Value] String[] [-Append] [-AsHtml] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters]

Key
   -Append
       Do not clear the clipboard but append content to it.

   -AsHtml
       Render the content as HTML to the clipboard.

   -LiteralPath String[]
       The path to the item that will be copied to the clipboard.
       Unlike Path , the value of LiteralPath is used exactly as it is typed.
       No characters are interpreted as wildcards. If the path includes escape characters, enclose it in single quotation marks. 
       Single quotation marks tell PowerShell not to interpret any characters as escape sequences.

   -Path String[]
       The path to the item that will be copied to the clipboard.
       Wildcard characters are permitted.

   -Value String[] 
        Specify, as a string array, the content to copy to the clipboard.

   -Confirm
       Prompt for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

   -WhatIf
       Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing it.

   CommonParameters:
       -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -WarningAction, -WarningVariable,
       -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable -OutVariable.

Standard Aliases for Set-Clipboard: none, but if you want to add a short alias like clop, set it with set-alias
