By on December 1st, 2009

The default Windows clipboard has a serious downside. It can only keep the last copied data and whatever you copied earlier is lost. If you want to copy multiple items in Windows Clipboard, Winklipper is just the tool you need.

Earlier we have seen some better alternatives of Windows clipboard and how to perform specific actions while copying text in Windows clipboard. Winklipper can be used to backup and restore Windows clipboard data very easily.

To get started with Winklipper, download Winklipper and extract the zipped package. It is a portable application and thus requires no installation. You can carry the small utility in a usb stick and use it on multiple computers.

    Is there any such application that will store multiple screen captures (not just text)?

    @Robert : You can use Techsmith Snagit for automatically storing screen captures.

      Doh, it would have to be trialware, wouldn't it. Thanks

        So much for that. Snagit locked up the system (XP) whenever I tried to do something in Windows Explorer (ie: right-click a file, create a folder, etc.)

          Well that's strange. Did you use the original version ?

    try Quick Multi-Copy which remembers last 10 items you have copied to clipboard, and you will know why it is called “Quick”.
