Frequent cut-and-pasters will love M8 Free Clipboard's ability to manage many clips at once as well as its pop-up previews, hotkeys, and multiple paste options. It saves and organizes up to 500 clips. A pop-up control panel lets you organize and annotate multiple Sheets full of clips. Video tutorials, forums, and a quick start guide make M8 Free Clipboard easy to learn.

Pros

Views and previews: Though M8 Free Clipboard only holds 30 clips per Sheet, it supports multiple Sheets and holds up to 500 clips total. Large previews make it easy to tell clips apart.

Hotkey and Macro Clips: Views 9 and 10 hold lists of hotkeys and macro clips, though, as with Sheets, the free version limits storage.

Pictures: The Pictures menu lets you browse and paste images directly from your files or on a single sheet.

Paste: M8 Free Clipboard's Paste menu has more than 20 commands, including cases, cells, sources, and custom buttons. You can even paste directly to HTML editors and DOS.

Cons

Limitations and upgrades: M8 Free Clipboard's limitations over its premium version, Spartan Clipboard, won't matter to the average user who usually only handles a few clips at a time. But some users object to sales pitches, so we're mentioning it.

Bottom Line

M8 Free Clipboard's preview pane is more than enough to recommend it over other multi-clip managers (at least, those that aren't also free versions of Spartan). But any Windows user can benefit from an upgrade over the built-in Clipboard.

Developer's Description

M8 is the simplest of all multi-clipboard and screen capture programs. Just have it running minimized and it captures everything you cut or copy from other programs. You can save clips permanently. You can take (and edit ) screen shots.

You can create clips which automatically include the system date and time. You can encrypt sensitive clips like your passwords and credit card details. You can paste any digital photo or graphic file on your PC simply by browsing to it and clicking a button. Best of all, if you have more than one PC, you can synchronize your clip data via Onedrive.

When you want to paste back a clip, all you have to do is restore M8 and click on the clip you want. When you move the mouse over the clips, you can see them in the viewer. If the clip is text, you see several lines and if it is a graphic, you see a thumbnail. Screen Shots - To capture the entire screen press Prt Scr. To capture the active window press Alt+PrtScr. To capture an individual graphic from Internet Explorer or AOL, point to the graphic, right click and select "Copy" from the drop down list. M8 also allows you to paste your digital photos directly into the body of Outlook, Windows Mail, Mozilla and other e-mail programs.
