The Windows clipboard is that hidden data storage area that is used to temporarily store data that gives you the ability to cut, copy and paste between applications. The Windows clipboard is limited in that it is a one time cut/copy and paste operation that does not allow for or save multiple instances of the same. To resolve this limitation there are third party software solutions that will allow you to store more than one instance of a cut/copy and paste operation. One such (FREE) application is called PasteCopy.Net . I have featured this app on here before and it is definitely worth a repeat, due that it continues to get better.
PasteCopy.Net is a portable clipboard manager that enhances and (in essence) enlarges the capacity of the Windows Clipboard operations by supporting multiple cut/copy and paste operations. This app will handle multiple cut/copy and paste operations of graphic and/or text and is very useful; especially if you are a blogger or someone that performs a great deal of editing (e.g. html editor, graphic editor, author). The cool factor about this clipboard manager is that you can arrange the items that you accumulate into categories which makes locating clips a snap.
PasteCopy.NET does not require any installation, and does not leave a trace on the computer; however, the app is dependent on .NET 2.0 or higher (which is a component that is commonly installed on today’s PCs).
