    Default Copy multiple items to clipboard using clipboard managers



    Searching for something that can ease the everyday process of copy-pasting? The answer is - Clipboard managers. And there are a lot of options to choose from.

    A clipboard manager does the basic task of storing the information for the temporary period of time during the time you copy the content and paste it somewhere. Now the built in clipboard of Windows stores one entry at a time. This is where clipboard managers come in. They let you temporarily store multiple bytes of information, maintains a history, and lets you paste that content one by one. I used many of them but I am leaning more towards 'Ditto'.

    ‘Ditto’ lets you save multiple items in the clipboard and lets you retrieve them one by one at a later time. Unlimited amounts of data can be stored in clipboard using ‘Ditto’. The most advanced feature of ‘Ditto’ is that, it lets you copy information from one computer and paste it to another.







    Other features of Ditto:
    1) Keeping synchronization of clipboard data within multiple computers.
    2) Ability to encrypt data when transmitted over the network
    3) Foreign character support

    You may go 'meh' but clipboard managers are really cool time savers.

    Some other clipboard managers that I came across: Clipmagic (8/10), Clipboard Recorder (8/10), Sanvient (6/10) and ClipTorrent (6/10). Use them and make copy-pasting a breeze!

    Do all these run on Vista?

    My instinct says they will run on Vista without a glitch.. The screenshots are from Windows 7 though. It runs fine.. Small footprint size, integrates seamlessly, sits quietly and does a significant job.

    Yes they run on all Windows. Thanks for the nice article, Jal.

    Let me post a related links here:

    Also, while on clipboards, if someone wants to create a shortcut to clear clipboard, you can do so as follows:
    Rt click on desktop > New > Shortcut > Type
    cmd /c "echo off | clip"
    Click Next > Name it 'Clear Clipboard' > Finish.
