How to Have Multiple Clipboards

Windows clipboard is really limited. The moment you cut something, you automatically replace whatever was in the clipboard before. If you need the old copied text, there’s no way other than to go back, copy it again, if it still exists, and then paste it.

I’ve just installed a program called ClipX, a marvellous free clipboard extender. It lets you go back through your cut and paste history and paste older copies. The best thing is that it doesn’t interfere with the regular cut-and-paste that I use. And I only need to learn one more new hotkey.

There are many other free clipboard extenders if you don’t like ClipX. There are also clipboard extenders for Mac OS X listed on that same page as well.
