Whenever you use copy or cut function in windows OS then the data is stored in buffer area called clipboard. Data from this buffer area is retrieved while using Paste function. If you often use copy and paste then this tiny portable software can come handy for you. Free Clipboard Viewer can let you convert your copied data in multiple possible formats like html, Rich text, Unicode and many more.
The software size is mere 450 kb and it is portable. You can carry it anywhere in your pendrive and run without installation.
How To use Free Clipboard Viewer Software
- You need to download it from here.
- Now Run freeclipviewer.exe and a window will popup. The interface is pretty clean and simple and contains two panes. First pane show various formats for clipboard data and second pane shows copied content in select format.
- The data on this window will automatically change when you will copy any text or file.
- You will notice that the button on left sidebar will change depending upon type of data. For example I copied text from Microsoft office and it showed me more than 10 formats in which it can be converted. (see screenshot below)
If you have copied a large chunk of data and you no longer intent to use later then you can also clear buffer area by Delete on the software.
One feature which I would like to see in its future updates the ability to select and use old clipboard data as it keeps only the most recent copied content. Otherwise this has great functionality and considering that it is a small freeware portable utility, I will personally recommend it.
If you have used any other clipboard software then do share your experience about it. Also don’t forget to share this post on face book and social media.
