Every once in awhile I find a really handy program that makes my life easier. Clipomatic is one of those. I spend so much of my online time using the copy and paste functions of Windows, but one of the inconveniences of copy and paste is it only remembers the last item I copied.
Clipomatic is a clipboard cache program – it remembers what was copied to the clipboard even after new data is copied, and allows you to retrieve the old data. While there are many programs that do the same, none are quite so convenient, simple to use, or efficient as Clipomatic.
Now when I want to paste in something I copied earlier I hit ctrl-alt-v and a small dialog box opens with a list of recent items I copied. I then can select the item I need and press enter.
I also use Mike Lin’s Startup Control Panel which is a nifty control panel applet that allows me to easily configure which programs run when my computer starts. I use Windows 2000 which lacks this feature.
Another useful utility of Mike Lin’s is StartupMonitor which is a small utility that runs transparently and notifies me when any program registers itself to run at system startup.
