Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

When you need to paste text, the whole text, and nothing but the text, turn to this modestly appointed clipboard app. With a default hot key combination of WINDOWS V, PureText pastes plain, stripped-down, unformatted text from the source document to its destination quickly and without fuss.

It's hardly what one would call feature-rich, but this freeware offering doesn't need to be. It worked equally well on Vista and XP in our tests, and pasted flawlessly from Web documents. It would be nice if PureText had an optional desktop icon and was listed in the program menu; unless you've selected to run PureText on startup, you'll need to run the EXE to launch the app anew.

What do you need to know about free software?
