You can use Shift+Ins to paste text. From PuTTY documentation: Pasting is done using the right button (or the middle mouse button, if you have a three-button mouse and have set it up; see section 4.11.2). (Pressing Shift-Ins, or selecting ‘Paste’ from the Ctrl+right-click context menu, have the same effect.) When you click the right mouse button, PuTTY ...

Solutions to this can either be found in this question: How do I remap Shift + Del on Windows to mean Delete instead of Cut? or in Jeremy's own answer. You're most likely pressing Shift+Del. You still have Shift pressed from making your selection. Shift+Del is the key combination to Cut (just like Ctrl+X).

Beginning with Vista you can just Shift+Right click on the file in Explorer and select "Copy as path":          This even works for multiple files, which are put into the clipboard one per line. In Windows 8 this is exposed in the Explorer ribbon:

It is not secure. See this question & answer on Security.stackechange.com, quoted below: The Windows clipboard is not secure. This is a quote from a MSDN article. The Clipboard can be used to store data, such as text and images. Because the Clipboard is shared by all active processes, it can be used to transfer data between them. ...

Type this into a .bat file. You can then create a shortcut to it and place it in the taskbar, start menu, or assign a hotkey. ipconfig | find "IPv4" | find /V "192.168." | CLIP What it does: First find returns all the lines that contain IPv4. If you have multiple network adapters, from example from VMWare, you may want to exclude them. That's where find /...

Since you didn't ask about Macs: cat file | pbcopy (and likewise pbpaste) for those.

There's a multitude of applications that do this, but no built-in one. FlyCut, an open source fork of Jumpcut Jumpcut Open source and free. Even simpler.

xclip (probably available in your Linux system's repos) will work for any X11 system, including most Linux versions, or even X being run under windows or Mac OSX.

I don't believe so - Vista (or NT4) introduced the clip tool, which would do your command as dir | clip - but there's nothing on XP. If you're willing to use 3rd party applications, though, there's this, which works as above, except is called cb, not clip.


27

Found a solution here Run the following: cmd /c "echo off | clip" You can even make it into a desktop shortcut if the problem keeps happening.

This is a pretty decent compromise: PureText. This may not be a direct answer to what you asked, but this may be of use to someone else with a more general version of your question.

Try glipper, a GNOME clipboard app, and parcelite, a GTK+ clipboard manager. Both should be available to install from the repository. If you're using unity or gnome shell, clipit is a fork of parcellite with AppIndicator support (thanks @pydave). It has an ubuntu package.

In Linux, you can use xsel to mimic pbcopy and pbpaste: alias pbcopy='xsel --clipboard --input' alias pbpaste='xsel --clipboard --output' Source: Where's Walden? » pbcopy and pbpaste for Linux

Unfortunately, no. And I believe this is by design. The issue is that the Windows clipboard does not have to store the data. It is effectively a clearing house where any application can list the data that was just copied (or cut) and offer it up to any application (including itself) to be pasted. The clipboard contains a list of formats in which the data is ...

Create a shortcut to BGinfo (a program that shows system information on the Windows background). Double-click. : )

You can run the following commands on your remote machine one by one. Taskkill.exe /im rdpclip.exe Rdpclip.exe This is a temporary fix, alternately you can use an online copy paste tool.

I once spent a few hours rebooting, reinstalling VMtools, etc., while the fix was really suspending and restarting VMware itself.

You first need to see if vim is compiled with clipboard support, run vim --version | grep clip and see if there is a + or - in front of clipboard and xterm-clipboard. If it has clipboard support, copying from and pasting into the * or + registers should use the system/X11 clipboards, so "*yy would copy a line and "*p would paste it. In Ubuntu 10.10 you can ...

'Copy Image' is copying the raw image data, rather than the image file itself, to your clipboard. The raw image data will be 21600 x 10800 x 3 (24 bit image) = 699,840,000 bytes of data. That's approximately 700MB of data your browser is trying to poke onto the clipboard. JPEG compresses the raw data using a lossy algorithm and can get pretty good ...

ctrl-r follwed by the register lets you paste the contents of a register without leaving insert mode. Ctrl + r" Put from the default register Ctrl + rd Put from register d By the way, in vim they're called "registers" not "clipboards" and the verb is "put", not "paste". (Reminder, to get a visual selection into register d, you would use "dy)

minrk comment got me on the right track, and I've fixed it with the following package. sudo apt-get install python3-tk

The best I've found is Alfred, which has a phenomenal clipboard history functionality as part of its ($15) Powerpack. Among its features: Clearing history by time (e.g. 'keep only 7 days') Ignore apps (so text copied from Keychain, 1password, etc. isn't saved to the history) Snippets (for commonly pasted text) Clipboard merging (merge the current clipboard ...

I realise that the question has been answered, but here is another recommendation for a clipboard history manager: ClipMenu Menubar item: Hovering menu (hotkey): Apart from the menubar and floating window, it also has customisable 'actions' that allow you to manipulate text as you paste it (e.g., uppercase everything), and support for snippets to ...

The site adding the annoying "Read more" stuff is ShareThis. To prevent this bad behavior, you have three different alternatives: Disable the clipboard events These websites are using the Clipboard APIs, which allows web developers to intercept the copy/cut/paste actions and execute some code when they are performed. This is how ShareThis (and other ...

vim in Fedora is compiled without any X support in order to minimize the number of dependencies it has. You'll need to use gvim instead, in the vim-X11 package.

A bit late, but hopefully this can still help someone. I have this exact same problem as well, on Windows 7 64-bit too. For me, I just found out it was caused by Outlook 2007. You can find out which application is keeping a lock on the clipboard by running David Candy's app: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/temp/GetOpenClipboardWindow.zip This gives you the PID ...
