Copying (Ctrl + C) & pasting (Ctrl + V) functions greatly improve the efficiency of computer office. But the Windows built-in clipboard can only hold one record, which becomes the biggest limit to the Coping/Pasting function. Especially, copying/pasting the same content repeatedly often makes people tired and makes it easier to make mistakes.

As a lightweight but powerful clipboard caching utility, CLCL has the ability of calling out its clipboard history menu by hotkey at any time. And the more exciting ting is it supports all clipboard file formats (text, link, image, multimedia file, folders… anything you can copy). Moreover, CLCL also allows to extend its functionality through plug-ins (such as Unicode Text Format, Play Sound on copy, Rich Text Format, Windows-format metafile, Enhanced-format metafile… get them from official site).

At first you maybe feel unused to CLCL’s working way, but very soon, you will significantly improve your work efficiency with its help. Then a few days later, you can’t even leave it.

// Tips //

  • With CLCL, for any kind of data that needs to be “copy/paste” frequently, you can directly save it as “Template” (or just drag & drop the item you want to use momentarily from “History” to “Template”) and then assign a hot key (or not) to the item. Then from now on, when or where it is need, what you need to do is just press “Alt + C” to call it out immediately anywhere and anytime.
  • When you want to disable the monitoring function to the clipboard of CLCL temporarily, just uncheck the “File/Clipboard Watch” option to stop it. Besides, you can change the record numbers of History items as you need.
