AutoClipX – Copy And Paste Text With Single Mouse Click

Many Windows users rely on third-party clipboard managers which help them quickly perform extensive copy & paste operations by providing a list of useful features like, holding text, images, file/folder links in a stack for defined amount of time. Before selecting a clipboard manager, you should check that which tool provides the fastest way of managing clipboard items. Out of all the clipboard managers which we’ have featured at AddictiveTips, AutoClipX offers the quickest way. How? It lets user perform copy & paste operations with a single mouse click. With this app, you won’t need to right-click the text and select Copy option or use Ctrl + C hotkey combination to move the text to clipboard, just highlight the text and it is copied, now head over to window, and click the middle mouse button to paste the copied text. AutoClipX is highly configurable. You can change the default paste key, register hotkeys to enable / disable copying behavior, and set delay time (before text is copied to clipboard and to clear clipboard).

The application is portable and keeps the user preferences in a single file. After the installation, it will prompt you to configure general settings. Start out with registering hotkey combinations to enable/ disable AutoClipX functionality and to disable it temporarily. Now specify mouse button to paste the clipboard item and to clear clipboard along with delay time. It allows you to disable copying new text until previously copied item is pasted or cleared from the clipboard. To enable this feature, check the respective option present above Tool Tips section.

At the right side, under Windows Ignore list, you can add windows in which AutoClipX automatic copying functionality will remain disabled. Once configurations are all set up, click Save to minimize it to system tray.

  1. Is there any software similar to Autoclipx for mac..
    What I do is select any text info I want in browser or pdf etc which gets automatically pasted in text doc, then I Copy them into my onenote and organize them there.
    Now I want to buy a mac machine, so is there any software similar to Autoclipx for Mac?

  2. Why can’t more than one copy of different parts of a document be stored via a right click of the mouse and a dialog box be opened showing your recent copy choices; then we can choose the one to paste? Am I the only person who thinks this would be very handy when bits and pieces of documents need to be copied and pasted?
    Or…is this function available and I need to be educated about it?
    Thank you for considering my question. Have a safe and blessed weekend.

    • That would be very handy indeed. Have you found anything that does this?
