Copying formatted text from the web page or Word document and pasting the text somewhere else is always a hassle as Windows OS also keeps the text formatting as well with the copied text. It always becomes a bit annoying as you also have to clean up the formatting every time you paste the text into your text editor. This tool will simply remove those unwanted formatting and will always paste clean text when you press the configured PureText hotkey. Copy the formatted text from the source as usual, but for pasting the text, use the PureText hotkey. I configured the PureText hotkey as Ctrl+Shift+V to more align with standard paste hotkey Ctrl+V.

Snipping versus Clip Boarding

Print Screen is old school. Windows 7 has a built-in Snipping Tool, which is a much better way to capture screenshots on your desktop. You can open Snipping Tool by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Snipping Tool, and then, in the list of results, click Snipping Tool.

In Windows 7 there’s and easier way to use your Print Screen function – it’s called the Snip Tool.

Just type in snip in the Search bar after hitting the Start button.  The Snip Tool will show up at the top. I usually drag it to my Desktop and then my Toolbar at the bottom of my screen.

Click on the New button and choose the area of the screen you want to save. It will then allow you to save that as a jpg. Once it is installed, it’s as simple as Click – Drag – Save. What can be easier.

Here are a few quirks I noticed.

  • You can’t snip when you are opening the Start Menu.
  • Be careful in choosing the area you want to Snip – there are not tools to modify your Snip.

You will love this nice little utility tool! When you copy the text from a web page or Word document, Windows keeps the formatting as well with the text. Paste that text into any word processor and you end up with unwanted formatting as well with the pasted text. Well, this tool will simply remove those unwanted formatting and paste clean text instead from the clipboard. Isn’t it nice!
