Clipboard Managers - Enhancers

Clipdiary for Windows

SUMMARY: Clipdiary stores a database of recently-accessed clipboard items, allowing you to retrieve and re-paste clips.

Clipdiary is a clipboard manager for Windows that stores copies of text, rich text, and bitmaps saved to the clipboard for later recall. After installing the program, a customizable hotkey (defaulting to Ctrl + D) opens Clipdiary, allowing you to get access to previously copied clips. Double-clicking a clip inserts it into the current application.

Configuration options include enabling or disabling Clipdiary access via the System Tray area of the Windows Taskbar, running on Windows startup, setting the maximum number of clips saved in the database between sessions (the default is 20,000), and cloning and switching clip databases.
