Designed for advanced PC users, ClipSpy is a simple Windows utility that monitors the Clipboard and shows the raw data and ASCII code of its contents. In addition to the Clipboard, the program can display the same information for any file.
Simple installation and interface
Setting up the application does not take a long time. It adopts a classical interface, represented by a single window with a plain structure made from two panels that show the raw data and ASCII code, respectively.
The tool automatically reads Clipboard contents. Files can be pointed out by dropping them in the left panel. In addition, it is possible to clear the Clipboard and save selected data to file for safekeeping. There are no other notable features available here.

We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since it did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. Although it is not feature-rich, ClipSpy serves its purpose when it comes to displaying the raw data and ASCII code of any files or Clipboard contents.
