Windows: We’ve featured plenty of clipboard managers before. Where CopyQ stands out is its ability to run commands or scripts on content you copy to the clipboard based on which type of content it is.
At its most basic level, CopyQ is a simple clipboard manager. It logs any content you save to the clipboard, you can edit clipboard contents with the CopyQ editor, and move selected items up or down the list to keep some of them around. However, go to File > Preferences > Commands and you get a world of new options.
Based on filtering options such as the type of the content (such as a URL or an image), the contents of what’s copied, or what window it’s copied from, you can set CopyQ to automatically perform certain actions. Common tasks include opening a URL in a new tab, encrypt/decrypt files, or run your own shell scripts.
