Clipboard Managers - Enhancers

Ditto Clipboard Manager

SUMMARY: Ditto lets you manage text, images, and other items copied to the Windows Clipboard, and clips can be re-pasted via hotkeys.

Ditto is an open source clipboard enhancer for Windows that keeps track of text, images, and other copied items. Previews of items including image thumbnails can be viewed simply by clicking on the icon the application installs to the System Tray area of the Windows Taskbar. Items can be pasted into the current document by pressing the Ctrl + ` Quick Paste shortcut (customizable).

Clip management is available - clips can be deleted, text clips can be edited, clips can be assigned hotkeys and made to never auto delete, and you can create new text clips without copying text to the clipboard. Clips can be exported and imported. Clips can even be shared over the network.

Editing a clip from within Ditto

Many configuration options include adjusting hotkeys, changing where the clip database is stored, playing sounds when an item is copied, enabling transparency when using the Quick Paste hotkey, starting Ditto on Windows startup, adjusting where the Ditto popup is positioned, and enabling three copy buffers where items can be copied and pasted without affecting the standard Clipboard. A few themes are available to change how Ditto looks.

Configuring Ditto

Ditto comes as an executable or a portable version in a ZIP archive.
