Clipboard Manager

Clipboard History

Clipboard History. Many users feel the need for an improved Clipboard, because storage for only one piece of text at a time is just not enough. Clipboard History lets you paste up to hundred Clipboard text entries into any application. Just press the usually idle Caps Lock key and a paste menu will be shown.

If you would like another hotkey (e.g. Alt + C) for this menu, you can configure it in a minute. Both the Caps Lock key and the user defined hotkeys work from all Windows applications. Not a fan of hotkeys? You can use the Tray Icon to access to Clipboard History text items!

For text snippets that you need often, like your email address or phone number, Clipboard History offers the Stickies feature. You can add Sticky items to the paste menu, so Clipboard History will display both the last text items you have copied to Clipboard and your predefined text clips.
