  1. Open Clipboard Master (e.g. with Win + V)
  2. Display the list with the clipboards, e.g. with Left Cursor.
  3. Now open the clipboard properties: Alt + Insert or using the context menu

Can old entries be automatically deleted?

I don't want the passwords that I store and copy in a password manager to end up in Clipboard Master. What do I do?

Add an exception:

  1. Open the program in which Clipboard Mater should not save the entries
  2. In the Clipboard Master tray icon menu, select: Settings -> In ... -> Do Not Save -> All

You can also change, add or delete these exceptions manually in the Settings -> Clipboard -> "Exceptions and Program-Specific Settings".

How can I save an image from the list as a JPG, BMP or GIF file?

Press the right mouse button on the entry in the list. In the context menu, select Image -> Save Image(s) As. You can now select the desired format under file type in the save file dialog.

Can I use both modes, the quick menu (simple list) and complete display?

Yes, define an additional global key combination in the settings:

  1. Click on the tray icon and select Settings -> Settings -> Global Key Combinations.
  2. Click on the "New" button or press Ctrl + N .
  3. Type the desired key combination and select "Display Clipboard" or "Display Quick Menu" under "Assigned Action".

Can I transfer clipboards and settings to another computer?

Yes, Clipboard Master saves all data in the directory

  • C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\Jumping Bytes\ClipboardMaster and/or

The clm/clm2 files are the clipboards and settings.ini contains the settings.

You can copy these into the corresponding directory on another computer.

How to reset all settings?

  2. Open the folder %APPDATA%\Jumping Bytes\ClipboardMaster
    e.g. Start menu -> Run -> enter the path -> press OK
