What is clipsrv.exe?

Part of Windows NT DDE Server by Microsoft

What is it?

DDE is a protocol built into Microsoft Windows that allows users to share data between applications, either on a local machine or across a Windows Network connection. As the name suggests, DDE is a method for Windows applications to communicate with one another and share information in a dynamic fashion.
Description of clipsrv.exe from Microsoft
When an application initiates the DDE process, the application is said to be the client because it requests information from another application. The other application is called the server because it provides its services to a DDE client. Despite what the name implies, a client and server communicating through DDE never talk directly to each other. Rather, they send messages to Windows, which passes the information on to the correct destination. Because of this, the world of DDE encompasses entire networks and is not limited to a single workstation. With DDE it is possible for a Windows application on one machine to send data to an application that is running on another workstation, provided that they are on the same network. Additionally, it is possible for a single application to participate in multiple DDE conversations simultaneously.
