Just about anyone who uses a computer knows how useful the clipboard can be, but it's not hard to become frustrated by its limitations. Wouldn't it be great to be able to access previously cut and copied items, not just the most recent one? There are plenty of programs that let you do exactly that, and Clipboard Magic is one of them. This easy-to-use tool keeps all of your clipboard items handy and easily accessible, and it's a great choice for anyone who frequently moves text between documents or wants an easy way to save important information.

Clipboard Magic appears as an icon in the Windows system tray, and once it's running, you don't really have to do anything to use it. Just cut and copy as you normally would, and the program stores all of the text; a list displays brief previews of all items, and clicking on the expand button reveals the full text of each one.

You can also save, open, and edit lists of clips, and a configuration menu lets you easily customize the program's behavior, including suspending clip archiving. We weren't able to get Clipboard Magic's Help file to load, but this was a minor drawback; we found the program to be extremely intuitive, and we didn't have any questions about it.

Overall, we loved Clipboard Magic, and we think it's a great addition to any computer. Even if you don't think you need it, you might be surprised to find how useful it is.
