Should be reliable from 7.1.3 build forward as for see also bug 140813

On your Windows 10 Pro instance is the "new" Windows 10 provided "Clipboard History" enabled active? Shown with a <Win>+V key, but enabled/disabled from Start > Settings > System > Clipboard. 

Please obtain a functional clipboard viewer (NirSoft's "InsideClipboard" [1] for example) to explore exactly what is available to paste into LibreOffice on the system clipboard as you do your external copies.

Test with the Windows 10 "Clipboard History" disabled and enabled.
