It only took me one or two disasters in losing huge blocks of copied text to cave in and download a third-party clipboard manager for Windows. While there are many, like ClipTrap, I’ve found that plenty of them have poor interfaces or indexing options that are not very featureful.

Quickly find and copy obscure symbols, then post them into any program. Symbol Caddy is among those long-forgotten class of Mac apps – the dashboard widget. Which is a shame, because it’s a widget that is sincerely useful.

Windows 7′s file copy dialog is okay. It isn’t the fastest when copying a large number of files. However, there are faster ways to copy files. The traditional Windows file copy dialog’s worst problem is the way it stops and waits for input when it detects a problem, preventing you from leaving the process alone to finish on its own. Luckily, Microsoft improved this with Windows 8. If you’re not using Windows 8 yet, you can get this feature on Windows 7 or even older versions of Windows.

But is someone else doing Pastebin better than Pastebin itself?
