Previously, we have covered a lot of clipboard managers, including Clipboard Text Recorder, ClipX and Free Clipboard Manager, that have their distinct functionality like managing clipboard through hotkeys and saving screenshots in clipboard. Ace Clipboard is another such clipboard manager that lets you copy and paste text, capture and edit screenshots, as well as access and open files, folders and URL links directly from the clipboard manager. The pasting process doesn’t require you to access any menus or learn any hotkeys; you can paste text, URLs and images just by clicking on their name. Ace Clipboard has the capability to save up to 25 clipboard entries. Read the details about Ace Clipboard after the jump.
