This free program effectively grabs clipboard items, though it only provides the most basic of clip-management tools.
Visual Clipboard is an executable program that runs in your system tray, grabbing items like text, files, and images copied to the clipboard and listing them in a clean, simple interface. The program does save formatting, but you can only edit text snippets. You also can save a group of clips into a file recognized only by the program.
Unlike similar programs, however, Visual Clipboard doesn't support hot keys to open the program or insert clips. You have to copy the clip you want from the program's list and paste as you normally would. Visual Clipboard is very easy to use and anyone can try this free program, though more flexible and featured-filled clipboard utilities are readily available.
