 ArsClip
lockergnome Rated 4 stars at snapfiles.com must have free program as freewaregenius.com 5 star Editor Pick Award
ArsClip is a freeware "clipboard manager" utility. ArsClip monitors the clipboard and keeps track of the entries. Pasting is done by using a triggered popup window. This window can be triggered by a hotkey, holding right-click, a special trigger window, and other methods.

ArsClip used to be barebones, but I think I can safely say that it has become a nicely featured and highly configurable program, due to user feedback. The program now specializes in copy-and-paste automation tasks.

Delphi XE2 source code included

Features

- Permanent Clips/Macros for copying and pasting automation
- Picture, RichText, File Copy, Unicode, HTML support
- Highly configurable
- Win7 Jumplist support
- Optional Clipboard Bar -- clipboard viewer
- Optional Global Clipboard to shares clips with other Windows and Android devices

Requirements

This program requires no installation, but an optional setup program is included. Supported on Windows XP through Windows 10.

Also, now available on Android™ arsclipmini.joejoesoft.com/
