Store Multiple Items to Clipboard in Windows

Yes! You can store multiple items in your Windows Clipboard using Clipboard Managers for Windows. You can also assign hot keys for each clipboard items and assign Hot Key to last ten copied items.

When you copy something from the web or from Documents and anywhere else, the copied item goes to the Windows Clipboard for temporary period and lost after restarting and shutting down Windows. Also, you can only keep one item in your Clipboard, which means if you will copy new item (Like images or text), the previous item will be deleted.

If you are a Blogger and let's suppose you have to copy two links in your post, what will you do? You will have to make two round trips to the pages to copy the two links. But with Clipboard Managers, you can keep two or more items in your Clipboard and assign hot keys to paste it. You can maintain the history of large number of items in your Clipboard.

I found Ditto as one of the best clipboard manager and it can do everything you may desire. Let's know how to manage Clipboard Items with Ditto.

  • You can also assign Hot Keys to specific clipboard item. It will be good idea if you use particular text or image in each and every post or document. For eg. If you use the word "Windows Clipboard Manager"  on each document, you can assign Keyboard Shortcut to it.
