Do you want to do multiple copy/paste in Windows 10?
Are you looking for a way to increase your productivity at work?
Copy & Paste was invented in 1970, since then it never evolved… at least in Windows OS.
By default, you can only paste one element you copied, what if we were able to copy an unlimited number of elements and paste the ones we want.
This can be useful if you don’t want to miss an object in your daily work job.
In this tutorial you will discover Ditto, which is a free program that allows an unlimited amount of copy/paste. It will save you hours of productive work by allowing you to copy multiple elements into a virtual clipboard to paste later.
Let’s dive in!
How to Copy/Paste Multiple Times in Windows 10
Ditto is a clipboard manager that allows you to further improve your copy/paste experience in Windows OS.
You can download Ditto from this URL: https://ditto-cp.sourceforge.io/
After you double-click the installation program, choose your language. Click “OK“.
Choose a destination installation folder, click “Next“.
Allow the access to the Firewall.
Click on Ditto’s icon in the taskbar near the time.
Click the three dots.
Here you can set different settings such as the maximum of saved copies, the expiration period of pastes, the language of the interface and the display font, and more.
Open “Keyboard Shortcuts“.
Choose a keyboard shortcut of your own to activate Ditto. I have chosen Ctrl+Alt+D.
There are other shortcuts under the tab “Quick Paste Keyboard“.
Here are some of the shortcuts:
|Ctrl-`||Default Ditto window activation Global Hot Key|
|F3||View full text or image or HTML of selected text|
|Tab||Move focus to the next control in the current window|
|Ctrl-Space||Toggle Ditto window between normal and always showing on top (persistent)|
|Enter||Paste Selected Items in the Target Window, or Enter Group (if the item is a Group)|
|Alt-Enter||Open the Clip Properties Dialog|
|Shift-Enter||Past CF_TEXT (plain text with no formatting) only|
|F3||Show Full Description in a tooltip|
|Ctrl-G||Show the hierarchy of Groups in a Treeview|
|Backspace||Go to the Parent Group|
|F7||Create a New Group and place the currently selected Clips in that Group|
|Ctrl-X,C,V||Cut, Copy, Paste Clips between Groups (this does not use the Windows Clipboard)|
|n/p/up/down||While the description window is open this will move to the next or previous clip|
You can also access the “Stats” to get an idea about how many times you copy & paste in your activity.
