Best 'no frills' clipboard history tool?
« on: May 28, 2019, 06:32 AM »
Hi Forum,

I am looking for the simplest possible application for managing clipboard history.

I only and solely need the two following features:

1) immediately paste the clipboard's content as unformatted text using a customizable keyboard shortcut
2) saving the last 10 to 20 clipboard entries as unformatted text (no images, no formatted text, no fancy frills, no search function, no cloud function etc.)

Thanks heaps for suggestions!

My Clipboard Help and Spell will do what you want, but is almost certainly not the simplest or most minimal tool.

I don't think that people get that questions are asked because others want feedback from users that they sort of trust.

I've used clipX for a really long time.

I push win+shift+v to paste history items.

Sorry, David.P  :(

I have been without patience, because I just found my neighbour dead, and that has been difficult to handle.

Also, your request really could have been updated, so to speak, instead of asking for an app from the previous century... Any way, that is what I am offering!
Uncheck what you don't want:

Hamsin Clipboard is 18 years old, but is quite close to what you ask for. Hamsin (hclip.zip 48kb): https://www.softpedi...msin-Clipboard.shtml
