Cool. Thanks for letting me know!


Power Up Your Copy & Paste Functions With These 2 Tools

PasteAsFile is a neat little tool that will allow you to create instant clipboard files using Windows Explorer.
Using Windows 7, you can simply right click on your desktop area or on a folder in a Windows Explorer window. You should see the PasteAsFile option in the context menu.

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Paste As File Beta
« on: September 07, 2012, 02:17 PM »
I have made a few changes/updates to Paste As File. In this BETA version I have added a preview panel so you can see what text or image is in the clipboard and I added a way to allow PAF to suggest a file type/extension. It is called Suggestions and if any of the "words" in the Suggest string matches the text in the clipboard, it will suggest the file type/extension that is associated with the Suggest string. There are only 3 built in HTML, PHP and CSS, but you can also add your own. So if you are a programmer you can add specific "words" to look for and PAF will suggest the file type/extension. I have not updated the help file yet, so you will have to play around with it a bit. The Suggest strings are searched in the order they appear in the dialog, so if you have HTML before PHP in the dialog and you have text in the clipboard that contains HTML code and PHP code, it will use HTML since that is what it would see first.

To edit the suggestions, RIGHT CLICK in the extension edit box when pasting to a text file.

You can download PAF Beta here

Please let me know what you think! Thanks!

I was contacted by the editor of German c't magazine, and he want's to put a write up in there. If there is a way to get this set up soon that would be great so people have a place to download without crashing anything. Thanks a lot!

@rgdot: Thanks for the write up, one thing though. You got the Replacements backwards on your screen shot. The #ASK# should be on the With This... side. When the input box comes up, the Replace This... is replaced with what the user enters. This is still in beta testing also, so you might want to add that to your post as well.

@Ath: Good ideas. I'll try to get some of these added.

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Copy Contents
« on: August 28, 2012, 12:10 PM »
I had created this a while ago so I can quickly copy a text file and paste the contents to an email. Since then I have decided to make it much better (and it was also requested on and release it here first for beta testing before I post it on my site.

Copy Contents adds a context menu item to files allowing you to copy the contents of that file to the clipboard. Supported files are plain text files and image files (jpg, pcx, png, bmp, tga, gif, tif).

Please download the final release from http://starpunch.blo...p/copy-contents.html

I have gotten over 2000 Dls (and counting) and mentioned on over 6 sites. Thanks to everyone that downloaded and use it! :-) Oh, and stay tuned, I am updating to allow you to browse to a folder when pasting a file and I may try to add a way to "guess" what the file should be and suggest the best extension.

It can already to other text formats. Just change the extension. So if you copied HTML code, just choose Paste As File and change the extension to HTML, or any other plain text file format. I use it for TXT, PHP, HTML, CSS and DSC just to name a few.

I think I may be able to add command line support. I'll look into that.

Paste As File has been updated to v2.1.0.0

I have changed the UI to allow easier editing of the file name without having to also type the extension.


It now also supports pasting as RTF (rich text format) files. This will allow you to copy formatted text from applications such as Microsoft Word and paste as a RTF file and keep the text formatting intact. There are some applications that may not keep the formatting when pasting to a RTF file. You will just have to test your application to see.

More info and download on my site: Paste As File

There is also a write up on Instant Fundas about Paste As File!

Another write up on  :Thmbsup:

A video review on!

And many more...

I took a minimal approach.


Announce Your Software/Service/Product / Copy Area
« on: August 06, 2012, 09:00 PM »
To go with Paste As File I made Copy Area. This also adds a menu item to the background context menu of windows explorer and the desktop called Copy Area. It will copy a selected are of your screen to the clipboard. You can then paste the image into any app that supports image pasting and you can also use Paste As File to paste the copied area to a file. There is a 5 sec delay until capture allowing you some time to get things in position for the capture if needed. You can also have a shortcut put on your desktop that has the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+Z that will also start the capture, but without the delay. You can change the hotkey using the shortcut properties dialog. This way the capture app does not stay running in the background.

You can download it from the webpage here -> Copy Area

Hmm, odd. I made the app on my Win 7 64 bit system and it works fine. I'll look into your problem and see if I can fix it.

Do you have admin rights to the registry on your win xp 64 system?

As a result of a topic here ->, I created Paste As File. It adds a "Paste As File" menu item to the background context menu of a windows explorer window and the desktop. It allows you to paste the contents of the clipboard to a file based on the clipboard contents. If it is text, it will past as a text file (with the default extension .txt) or as an image file (default extension of .png). Supported image file formats are jpg, pcx, png, bmp, tga, gif and tif.

Paste As File will remember the last extension used for either image or text and will show that the next time you paste.

You can download the latest version from my website ->

Paste As File is freeware. If you like and use it, I accept donations. :-)


Great, glad you like it. I am going to make some tweaks to it and I'll post an update. I'll put it in the Announce Your Software topic for everyone to see.

I thought this was a good idea, so I decided to make a quick app called Paste As File. Right click on the desktop or on the background of a Windows explorer window and select Past As File. You can then save the clipboard to a file based on the contents. Either a text file or an image in PNG or JPG format. You can download it from my website if you are interested. It's free.


Here is an AutoHotkey script that will do what you ask (attached is an compiled EXE as well). You can change the hotkey by editing the script. Right now it is set to Win+N (#n in the script). This works on my Windows 7 system. Not sure about others, you'll have to test it out. Hope this helps.

; AutoHotkey Version: 1.x
; Language:       English
; Platform:       Win9x/NT
; Author:         Chris Gingerich
; Script Function:
; Template script (you can customize this template by editing "ShellNew\Template.ahk" in

your Windows folder)

; Creates a new textfile in the current folder if an explorer window is active.

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

The screenshot function would be built in, I do have the ability to make that.  ;)

Yeah, the icon on the menu will only show in Windows 7, not sure about any higher. It doesn't work below Windows 7.

Very cool. I'm glad you like them. Elementary school? My son (8 years) really likes using them and does very well with them. He has ADHD and ODD and they really help, especially in the evening when his meds are worn off. I tried using to try get funding to get them in the schools and daycares around here... didn't work, so I decided to just put the PDFs on my site hoping that someone else will get use out of them. If you can, I'd be very interested in knowing how they work for you.
