  • Specifically, to blank it, create an empty text file, (say it's named clp.txt in my documents folder.)

    Create a shortcut to this command:

    cmd /c "clip < C:\Users\Mark\Documents\clp.txt"

  • Ok, I give you a Point, I can execute "echo - | clip" to copy "-" into the clipboard, but why not a simple Key Combo like "Winkey + del", or "Ctrl + del" ?

    When I do a Screen shot, and paste it in Paint for printing or saving, the Program do'nt ask me "do you will clean the clipboard ?" to give free Memory or security Reasons, when I exit the Program.

  • No reason why your shortcut to that command I put up can't have a hotkey assigned to it. Rightclick the shortcut, Properties, Click the "Shortcut Key" input box, and choose a hotkey combo, like Ctrl-alt-c, and Apply

  • type <Win>R (Windows key+R), then type cmd /c echo.|clip.

    This will put a carriage return into the clipboard.

  • Or I write a Program, that check the Size of Clipboard Content every 5 Minutes, and Popup the Question "do you will clean the clipboard ?".

    I see that many Things are possible, but to much complicated for the most Users.
