How can I save text snippets to re-use them in Windows XP?

I have a few groups of text that I reuse on a regular basis and I want to just right click and select it from the menu to paste it in place. I need this in a Windows XP environment as these are cross platform uses. Quick access re-useable text pockets

    As Mulder mntioned above you may clipbaord manager apps for that. However those may not be idea if you need to be able to use certain text excerpts over and over on a regular basis. I think for cases like these a utlity that allows you to add specific text using shortucts would be better. Check out PhraseExpress, http://www.phraseexpress.com/

    There is also a MakeUseOf review of it, http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/phraseexpress-a-great-alternative-text-replacement-tool/

    It's not exactly clear what you're trying to accomplish here, but I'll guess that you want to be able to use the same snippets of text on both Mac and Windows XP.

    So if we logically assume that the actual text is on each computer, then you can use ClipMagic for Windows to store multiple items on the clipboard, versus the one item limitation of the Windows clipboard.

    If that's not what you're looking to do, then please be more specific.
