Clipboard Enhanced (clen) is a free clipboard manager which is designed for programmers. In addition to tracking history of the regular Windows clipboard it provides several additional clipboard types for exchanging values in different ways.
Clen tracks history for the regular Windows clipboard. You may browse it by pressing Ctrl+Numpad Sub / Ctrl+ Numpad Add hotkeys or selecting "Regular Clipboard\Previous Value" or "Regular Clipboard\Next Value" from tray menu.
Clen provides nine static clipboards. You may copy some value to any of it and then paste it back at any time. The hotkeys for Static Clipboards are the following:
- Press Ctrl + Numpad Number (form 1 to 9) to copy a value into one of the static clipboard.
- Press Shift + Numpad Number (form 1 to 9) to paste a value from one of the static clipboard.
Please note that all Numpad Number hotkeys work only with Num Lock turned off.
In addition to static clipboards clen provides dynamic clipboard which can contain multiple values. You can paste them as a queue or a stack. The hotkeys for Static Clipboards are the following:
- Press Ctrl + Numpad Insert to copy and push new value into top of the queue.
- Press Shift + Numpad Insert to paste and remove a value from bottom of the queue.
- Press Shift + Numpad Delete to paste and remove a value from top of the queue.
Password clipboard shows asterisks instead of real value in notification balloon, don't track any history, and clears automatically right after pasting.
Some password managers insert password values into a Windows clipboard. Password clipboard has an option to wait for a password and intercept it. Value is copied into password clipboard instead of a Windows one.
- Press Ctrl + Numpad Mult to copy a value into the password clipboard.
- Press Shift + Numpad Mult to paste a value and clear the password clipboard.
- Press Ctrl + Shift + Numpad Mult to wait for a password.
Stack-based dynamic clipboard model
By default dynamic clipboard works as FIFO (first in first out). Turn on this option and dynamic clipboard will work as FILO (first in last out).
Duplicate values to regular clipboard
When this option is turned on regular clipboard contains the same value as copied or pasted into static or dynamic clipboard. By default this option is turned off.
Automatically show content
Show notifications in a tray balloon each time when one of clipboards is changed.
Copy\Paste via Ctrl+Insert\Shift+Insert
Some programs don't work with Ctrl+Insert\Shift+Insert hotkeys as Copy\Paste commands, but some of them don't work with Ctrl+C\Ctrl+V. This option allow you to customize hotkey which is used by clen for coping to and pasting from all clipboard types. By default clen will use Ctrl+Insert\Shift+Insert.
Run when Windows starts
Clen will run at Windows startup.
