Clipboard Actions Copy Paste in Windows

Viewing the clipboard actions ( copy paste ) in Windows is a very easy thing to achieve, but before we talk about how to do that, we need to know a very important thing about clipboard viewers.

Clipboard Managers Are Risky

Some clipboard viewers send the copied data over the internet, not for bad purposes, but for the sake of unified data access, so you can access your clipboard data from your office, your home, or anywhere else.

keep in mind that, you are in danger as long as your sensitive data is stored on those servers and you have no idea about your data, does it encrypted? does the server secure enough against attackers? because all of your data might be stolen without your knowledge at all, and this is the most serious part about clipboard managers.

    For 10 years I was using different clipboard managers for saving history of clips. Now time has come and I have made my own clipboard manager – Clip Angel (freeware, open source) for Windows . It was inspired by AceText, ClipDiary, Ditto (my favourites). It make paste in most reliable way, so it can paste in RDP, CMD, elevated windows independently from current input language. It has the most convenient filter by clip text I ever saw. It allows viewing RTF and HTML formatting. Give it a try.
