ArsClip is a freeware utility for the windows clipboard. Pasting is done by using a triggered popup window. This window can be triggered by a hotkey, holding right-click, a special trigger window, and other methods.
ArsClip used to be barebones, but I think I can safely say that it has become a nicely featured and highly configurable program, due to user feedback.
Delphi 6 (Personal) source code is included - modify it freely for any non-profit use. NOTE: The newer versions are compiled with Turbo Delphi for Win32.
ArsClip runs on the system tray and monitors for new clipboard items (by default, only text items). You press a configured hotkey (CTRL+SHIFT+Z by default) to show the Popup in the current text window your working in. Click on an item to paste it into the current window or click Cancel to dismiss the popup. ArsClip pastes by using one of three methods: place on clipboard and pressing CTRL+V, place on Clipboard and press SHIFT+INSERT, or by mimicing typing. Mimicing typing is not recommended and should only be used for programs that don't support the other two pasting methods.
You don't have to use a hotkey to display the popup. You can configure ArsClip to display the popup when you double click the system tray icon (Under Configure -> Popup). You also have the option of using the Tooltip Popup instead of the normal popup. The Tooltip Popup is a minimalistic, single item Tooltip (like the ones you see when you hover over an item for a description).
