Editors' Review

+

Many people are casual users of their clipboard, employing it occasionally to cut and paste Web addresses and other bits and pieces. For other people, including anyone who works with code, the clipboard is a more serious tool. Free Clipboard Viewer is a simple program that lets users view whatever is on their clipboard at a given time in a variety of formats. It's not fancy, but it might be exactly what you need if you're a heavy clipboard user.

The program's interface is plain, consisting mostly of a pane that displays whatever is currently in your clipboard. On the left side of a screen there is a navigation pane that lets users select what format they want to use to view their clipboard's contents. For example, when we copied a link to our clipboard, we were able to preview it as regular text but also view it as Unicode text, text, locale identifier, and OEM text. When we copied a JPEG, the preview displayed the image, but also gave us the option of viewing the bitmap DIB, HTML format, bitmap, and bitmap DIBV5. There's really not much to the program in terms of features, but an online Help file explains both how Free Clipboard Viewer works and what the various clipboard formats mean. Overall, we think that Free Clipboard Viewer is a good choice for anyone who frequently needs to view the contents of the clipboard in a variety of different formats.

"Does exactly what it is meant for, and really well!"

February 18, 2012  |  By prime1999

 |  Version: Free Clipboard Viewer 2.0

Pros

Views all types in the clipboard, and even includes a hex editor to properly view binary data on the clipboard, and the hex values can be copied with the context menu.

Cons

Copying of Unicode text from binary data could be made better, and it would be better if an editor was built-in, but it's a viewer after all!

Summary

In reply to sintan, there are many times the data copied to the clipboard is just not the format that you want it in, or you want to see exactly what is the binary data stored on the clipboard. Things that I can think of right now are: extracting copied file selections in explorer, removing formatting from RTF formatted text, getting the binary data copied from the Registry Editor, etc.

"So what's it for?"

January 19, 2012  |  By sintan

 |  Version: Free Clipboard Viewer 2.0

Pros

Why would I want to fire up a stand alone program to see what's on the clipboard?

I know what's on the clipboard - I just put it there!
