You'll feel right at home with the Windows look and feel of Clip Cache, a powerful clipboard enhancement program that has drag-and-drop, property sheets, and right-click context menus. Its three-pane viewer will remind you of Outlook Express, with its View options, horizontal split windows, preview pane, and "group" (folder) viewer along the left margin. All your stored clips, from text to bitmap images, are easily located, viewed, and organized with few clicks of your mouse.

Clip Cache can be set to auto-capture, allows you to set storage options according to storage size or age, and minimizes to a system tray icon for easy access. To verify captures, you may select the sound option, and you may designate hotkeys for clipped items frequently accessed.

This program is as simple or as advanced as you choose, or need, to make it, with options available to all the file-save and capture maneuvers you could expect to make. While the Clip Cache window size can be changed to any dimension you want, it allows most practical viewing when it's sized to about one-quarter of the screen. Other clipboard viewers may be smaller, but Clip Cache certainly gives you plenty of detail (e.g., file size, format, date) that's nice to have if you need it.

Best of all, it's free and fully functional. The author requests only that downloaders drop him an email (below) if they plan to use the program, so he can keep current on the installed base, and collect feedback for future revisions.
