Did you try going to Settings > System > Clipboard History and making sure the slider is ON?

When I first tried the keystroke...nothing, but I didn't have anything in the clipboard. So I hit the print Screen button and then pressed the Windows key + V and it asked me if I wanted to turn it on, I said yes and there was my screenshot. Maybe it will work for you.
