Free Clipboard Viewer 2.0

Lightweight, portable and simple-to-use software application for viewing, inspecting and saving information about Windows Clipboard contents
Free Clipboard Viewer is a lightweight and portable piece of software that you can use to examine in-depth information on the content currently stored in the Clipboard, in order to find out the Unicode text format, locale identifier, text and OEM text format.

Portability advantages

Since there is no installation required, you can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to run. There is also the possibility to save Free Clipboard Viewer to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.

An important aspect worth taking into account is that the Windows registry and Start menu do not get updated with new entries, and no extra files are created on the disk, leaving it clean after removal.

Simple interface and options

The GUI is represented by a standard window with a plain and simple structure. Free Clipboard Viewer does not put emphasis on the visual aspect, though.

As soon as a clip is recorded in the Clipboard, the utility shows it in the first panel and lets you copy it as hex or link, as well as to change the encoding method. It is also possible to save information to file and examine it at a later time, as well as to make the frame stay on top of other windows.

Evaluation and conclusion

As expected, the app does not put a strain on PC performance, since it runs on low CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and works smoothly, without triggering Windows to hang, crash or pop up error messages. However, Free Clipboard Viewer comes packed with a limited set of options. We must also take into account that it has not been updated for a long time.
