ClipMagic - a good free clipboard manager

Notes from ClifNotes, Nov 2007, permalink Clipboard Utilities


The Windows clipboard is a Windows feature you use almost every day. Every time you cut, copy or paste anything, you used the clipboard. So what happens if you copy several items one after the other? Only the newest one stays in the clipboard memory. That's too bad if it's something you really did want to keep. This is where a clipboard manager or extension come in. They save all the clippings for you.


No doubt about it, ClipMagic is a great little clipboard manager. You can copy stuff all day long and you don't have to worry about losing any of the info you copied. You can always review your clipping history and get it back. You can keep clippings permanently and edit them to make changes. The interface takes a little work to figure out but once you get the hang of it, you may find that the old way of cutting and pasting is too limited for you now.


I liked ClipMagic but I'm sticking with my current clip-manager which is the open source clipper called Ditto. Don't let that stop you from trying out ClipMagic. Many people find it much easier to use and customize than Ditto.

Quote from the website

ClipMagic is a powerful Clipboard Extender and Information Manager for storing Images and Text, either automatically or manually in a categorised format, with details of the URL if the text is from an Internet site.


To save something simply copy it to the Windows Clipboard by pressing CTRL-C or right click on the mouse and select Copy. ClipMagic then automatically stores it and if you have set up Rules & Filters the clip will be moved into a particular category.


Clips can easily be retrieved either by copying from ClipMagic and pasting into your application or by using HotKeys or using the new PastePicker.
