When doing copy-and-paste of text from one Windows app to another, do you often find that unwanted formatting gets copied along with it? (This is particularly annoying to me when I'm trying to copy text from web pages.)

Clean Paste is a simple Windows tool that allows you to "clean up" the contents of the system clipboard, so that what you subsequently paste from it is straight ascii text, with no special formatting attached.

After installation, Clean Paste appears as an icon in the Windows task tray. Simply click on the icon to clean up the current contents of the system clipboard. (A right click allows you to unload Clean Paste from memory.)
