The Windows clipboard is one of the most useful features, even though it only comes with a single operable slot. Luckily, developers came out with methods to enhance this small tool and make it hold more entries. ClipBuffers is one suitable example in this regard, letting you save in permanent slots and paste through hotkeys.
Once installed and launched, the application automatically minimizes to the tray area, and is the place where it stays unless you want to manually go through all buffers, or edit any options. It’s also configured to start with Windows by default so that it’s ready by the time you reach the desktop.
It’s a good idea to bring up the configuration window to at least view all the controls you get to use. For starters, clipboard slots are split into two categories. One of them is the history if the current computer usage session, while the other permanently saves all entries in the buffer.
Simply copying files, bits of text, or pictures sends them in the history without any notifications. You can view all items in a clean panel which is also fitted with a preview window, which is especially helpful for pictures. This is mostly because there’s also a built-in screenshot tool which lets you capture specific regions of the screen.
As for the buffer, there are several preset text strings to help you better understand how this feature works. It’s not rocket science though, with the possibility to either send history items there, or use special hotkeys to directly save to specific slots. Although there are only 10 usable slots, these are enough to store most common and frequent forms you need in your work.
Taking everything into consideration, we can say that ClipBuffers is sure to come in handy in any domain of activity. Code snippets can be saved in buffers, or pictures captured with the built-in screenshot tool, while the intuitive layout of buffer copy and paste hotkeys make it worth your while.
