Programs to manage the copy, cut and paste clipboard in Windows

    Programs to manage the copy, cut and paste clipboard in Windows
    Have you ever wondered where the data ends up when doing the "Copy" on Windows? Did you know that there is a tool called Microsoft ClipBook Viewer among the Windows XP utilities?
    Probably, not out of mistrust, but not everyone knows it, because it is about a hidden utility which is not present in the Start menu or Start menu.
    Additionally, XP's ClipBook Viewer has been removed in Windows 10 and Windows 7. Basically, when you do cut or copy operations in Windows, the information is stored on the clipboard and remains there until you cut or copy a other information, or until the PC is turned off.
    Well, from the ClipBook Viewer tool window you can see the contents of the clipboard and the stored notes.

    UPDATE: In Windows 10, since October 2018, the function of the Clipboard history with synchronization between devices, to keep and retrieve the copy and paste data, so that they can also be reused on other computers.

    Different is the Microsoft Office Clipboard Viewer, which comes from the Office Clip.exe file and shows each piece of data that is copied for later pasting. The Word and Office clipboard viewers are visible to everyone and keep multiple copied or cut data in memory for later use.
    There are limitations in the Clipbook included in Windows XP and absent in Windows 7 and Windows 10 because images cannot be captured and the contents of the Windows clipboard do not store clipboard data for a long period of time. When you turn off your computer or just when you copy some other text, the data is lost (unlike that of Office).
    How many times has it happened that you need data copied half an hour or an hour earlier but replaced with something else?
    Or, simply, there may be a need to remember what was being done on the computer a month or a year ago without writing diaries.

    In short, the clipbard viewer in Windows does not exist and the goal of this article is to find a software free that that offers this function. A good software clipboard manager must be small in memory since it will be running all the time to capture all the data in the clipboard. It should have customizable shortcut keys for pasting and using clipboard data easily and quickly. Finally, it would be the case that it also records the date / time / place where the data was copied or cut.
    These are the best "Clipboard Manager" programs to manage clipboard copy and paste .

    1) Save.me keeps the Copy and Paste clipboard forever allowing you to retrieve them, search for them, modify them, protect them and reuse them whenever you want.

    4) ClipX is a small tool to manage the history of the clipboard that can be called up through a hotkey and supports both images in bitmap format and text.

Clipx is perhaps the best of these programs also because it supports the use of keyboard shortcuts and is very light.

    11 ) QClip is an enhancement of the standard Windows clipboard that allows users to paste text that has been copied or cut previously.

You can use the arrow keys to select the desired item, then press "Enter", or use the mouse and click the "Paste" button. QClip only works with plain text and the history is cleared when you restart your pc or if you terminate the QClip application. If you find that QClip is no longer storing anything, you have to right click the scissors icon in the system taskbar and select "Reset".
