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).

You need to insert your data into one column. Select this column, go to the Data menu and press the Text to Columns button.

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:

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.

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 ...

This is a pretty decent compromise: http://www.stevemiller.net/puretext/ Edit: I realize I specifically did not answer what you asked, but this may be of use to someone else with a more general version of your question.

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

'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 ...

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 ...

There's a multitude of applications that do this, but no built-in one. Clyppan, a simple application for clipboard history. Clyppan Used to be open source, but is now closed source and available in the Mac App Store (for approx. £2) Simple Jumpcut Open source and free Even simpler Flycut (Mac App Store link) A fork of Jumpcut with a few added ...

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)

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 ...

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).

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 ...

Shift + right-click the file. Select Copy as path.

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.

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.

There is not way to do this by default, but with a bit of hackery, we can work around that. You will need: PlainTextClipboard AutoIT Script (you can use AutoHotKey, I just don't know that scripting language) Create an AutoIt Script with the following code: $ptcPath = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Plain Text Clipboard\PlainTextClipboard.exe" HotKeySet("^v", ...

Use pbcopy: echo foo | pbcopy Also see man pbcopy for info on it and pbpaste.

Press Alt+Space followed by E and finally P This will open the alt Menu > Edit > Paste

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 ...

You can't do this with built-in methods, of course. I've researched a bit and here are the results I could find: Simple clipboard sharing for OS X There are a couple of simple tools that claim to do this. ClipCommControl is freeware and has support for 10.4 and 10.5, 10.6 and above untested. Stuf is a Windows/Mac clipboard manager that also synchronizes ...

Practically everything in Linux comes in the form of "additional packages" – usually shared libraries which are written once and used in hundreds of programs to avoid needless duplication. You shouldn't be afraid of them unless you are critically low on disk space. However, Linux itself does not have a "clipboard"; this function is part of the X11 ...

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.

On the Clipboard task pane, click Options. Clear the "Show Office Clipboard Automatically" check box. Clear the "Show Office Clipboard When Ctrl+C Pressed Twice" check box. Note: To copy items to the Clipboard while it is turned off, select the "Collect Without Showing Office Clipboard" check box. Source: MS Office Help File

Yes, you need a clipboard manager. There are many good ones around; may I suggest reading up on Wikipedia an article to see what they do; then it'll be easy from there to find one that suits your needs best.

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 ...
