4/9/08 - ClipX - a great little utility

This post will be slightly nerdy, it will contain computer terms and it is a review of a free piece of software that I have started using quite a bit.

The name of the utility is called ClipX. In it's most simple form, it is a clipboard extender. Most everyone who uses the computer, uses the copy/cut/paste functionality quite often. The problem that I have run into is that the clipboard will only hold one item at a time. If you have three or four seperate items you need to copy, you have to make three or four seperate trips.

With ClipX, all you have to do is highlight and copy all the different items from the source document. Navigate to the destination document and where ever you want to paste one of the items, press Ctrl + Shift + V (that is the default Hot Key and the setting I still use). Upon doing this, you will be given a drop down menu of the last 25 items you have copied in chronological order of when they were last used.

Another awesome feature that I just recently came across is an add-in that you can download from the link I supplied at the top. The add-in simply provides a permanent list of oft used phrases or strings. I haven't had a reason to use this much, but in the past, I can recall times when it would have been helpful.

I don't make a dime from this and I am in no way associated with the company/individual who wrote the program. Along those same lines, I do make money any time you visit the Adsense links (ONLY THE ONES THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU) and when you shop at Amazon using the link at the top right of the website or this link --> Amazon.com

I completely forgot about my Mac readers (you...I think is it). but, with that said, I did a little poking around and found two that were recommended. Not owning a mac, I can't test them out for you, but here are the links.
