As someone who works mostly in a browser, my motivation for seeking out this extension was simple. I wanted to avoid accidentally deleting ext with I Ctrl + Xâ€™d by accidentally copying something else before I had pasted what I wanted. It turns out that having persistent access to your clipboard is pretty useful when youâ€™ve lost a few thousand words to human error.
Clipboard History Pro is one such extension. Once installed, itâ€™ll save anything you copy in the browser to its clipboard, allowing you to find and paste it later at your leisure. While Microsoft has a similar solution, this works better due to its cross-platform nature. It has all the same clips on my Windows laptop as it does on my Chromebook. If I had a Mac, itâ€™ll also show that too.
Hereâ€™s the app description:
Clipboard history Pro offers the following features:
- Â Keep Favorite text close: Marking records as a Favorite protects them from being deleted and put in the context menu. These favorite items also can be quickly accessed via â€œfavâ€ view mode in the popup.
- Â Search and navigate through your clipboard history: Once installed, the extension collects any text notes that you have copied. It works in Google Chrome browser and in third-party software.
Re-copy any item by clicking on its text in the popup.
- Â Context menu and Input fields integration: You can quickly access and paste history items from the context menu (right-click mouse). It is applicable for input fields.
- Â Sync records across your devices: Send history items in one click to your other computers.
ClipboardPro is available from the Chrome Web Store here. It works on Microsoft Edge (Chromium) as well.
