Review: ArsClip adds tons of new features to your clipboard, but is overwhelming

Supercharge your clipboard with comprehensive and highly customizable ArsClip.

ArsClip gives you a much more powerful clipboard than the default in Windows. It adds so many bonus features that you might not even know where to begin. It's a fantastic download for anyone who frequently cuts and pastes chunks of text.

ArsClip monitors anything you copy and keeps track of it in a new clipboard so you have more control over it. It even keeps detailed histories and archives of everything you've copied or pasted, if you want. You can access the program with just a keystroke, and it shows you all of your most recent items. The program's menu is really where the program will impress you, though. There are plenty of options and bonus settings to completely control what you do with your text. You can set different menu options for every program and set all sorts of new keystrokes for custom actions. You can even change the colors, layout, and appearance of all of the menus in the program. The download includes about 12 different menus that let you change what the program can do with your clipped files. Since this is a portable program, you can take it with you and use on any computer.

If you've ever wanted more from Windows' clipboard, then this is the way to get it. ArsClip offers tons of ways to customize how and what you paste so you may spend some time just figuring out everything it can do. Once you see what it's capable of, though, you'll want to add this one to your toolbox.
