Share Clipboard Content With Multiple Computers

If you have a large office or classroom where you need to share the links, documents, or large amount of text frequently, Clipboard Share will come handy. It is a nifty little system tray tool that allows sharing of clipboard over the network.

The first thing that comes to mind is why not share the content over an IM client by establishing a group chat? This is a valid question, but has few disadvantages, such as, limited number of text can be send, text larger than 1MB or 100 words cannot be send, etc.

Clipboard Share is easy to set-up and sends the text over encrypted communication channel. It can only send/receive clipboard to/from trusted computers only. You can select the computers from the Authorized Sender tab in Settings. Since it can connect with multiple systems, it is possible to share the clipboard with more than 2 computers.

The username will be the computer’s default but can be changed easily. You can define the maximum size of the received messages for security purpose. Other options are Port and an option to run the app on startup.

  1. Hi! I use this little tool called <a href="http://clipboardmshare.steweche.co.uk/&quot; rel="nofollow">ClipBoardMultiShare</a> at work which is open source and uses Windows file sharing underneath to share clipboards across multiple computers. It’s a bit low-tech, but that comes very hand because it doesn’t require any firewall set up which you can’t do, say, in a corporate network, it doesn’t require program installation, again which is something you can’t typically do at work. It does need .NET v2+ but that’s quite common these days. Regards
