CopyQ Review

Fernando Ortega
A useful and flexible management tool for multiple clipboard entries
A review of CopyQ by Fernando Ortega

CopyQ is a completely free and open source clipboard manager which provides a ton of extended functionality to the Windows Clipboard.

With CopyQ, all you have to do is copy and paste as you normally would and the program will save what you have copied in a history which is accessible from within the program, accessible from the system tray.

The program also allows for searching clipboard activity and can even edit entries. Clipboard items which are no longer needed are easily deleted.

Items can be separated into tabs which are flexible. In fact, many of the elements of this program are customizable.

The layout of CopyQ is pretty easy to understand and if you're interested, can be fully customized to your liking in terms of colors, fonts and transparency.

In conclusion, ClipQ eliminates the issue of overwriting important data copied to the clipboard and provides many extras for full customization.

CopyQ features and highlights:
  • Store text, HTML, images and any other custom format.
  • Customize tray menu
  • Save items in tabs or tree
  • Quickly browse through items (fast navigation, filtering with matched text highlighting)
  • Sort items, create new, edit, remove, copy/paste to different tab
  • Variety of system-wide shortcuts (e.g. show main window or tray, edit clipboard, copy next/previous, paste as plain text)
  • Immediately paste to focused window from tray or main window
  • Fully customizable appearance (colors, fonts, transparency)

  • Ignore clipboard copied from some windows or containing some text
