Clipboard Wizard Converts Any Text On Clipboard To Plain Text

If you copy and paste text from web pages to Microsoft Word or Excel, it will also paste all the extra formatting, font, color and table information along with the text. To avoid this annoyance, either you need to configure the Word or Excel to ignore formatting or use an application like Clipboard Wizard.

Clipboard Wizard is a little lightweight application that runs in the system tray, automatically cleans the content of the clipboard, and transforms it to plain text. Therefore, you don’t have to use the 'Paste Special' feature of any program.

Clipboard Wizard is quite useful when you copy and paste a lot of text from web pages. It avoids any extra step required for pasting plain text from web pages and works well when pasting text in any application.

The application is quite simple to use. Just run it and it’ll sit in your system tray. It does not make any changes to your system or your registry. When you no longer need this feature, just close the application and your clipboard is back to its native behavior.

There are no minimum requirements, this application should run fine on Windows XP to 7. You can download (845KB) it source here.
