Clipboard in Windows is often used to copy the text, images, files and other things temporarily for the purpose of pasting them somewhere else. The most common reason why people use the clipboard for copying the data is so that they can later paste it in some other files opened in editor programs. For example, you can copy some text from a website and then paste it in some document opened in Microsoft Word. Similarly, you can copy some images from a website and then copy them in GIMP or Microsoft Paint.
But what if you do not want to paste the data from the clipboard into an editor program? What if you just want to save it to a file? In that case, the usual route is to create a new file, open it in the appropriate editor program, paste the data and then save the file. You can skip all these steps, if you use the free Pastextra program.
The Pastextra program adds a small right-click context-menu handler in the File Explorer. Whenever you want to dump the data from the clipboard to a file, all you have to do is right-click in the folder where you want to dump the data and choose Pastextra from the right-click menu.
Pastextra recognizes the data format in the clipboard and saves it in the appropriate file type automatically. If the data inside the clipboard is of text type, then it is saved in the .TXT files. And if the data inside the clipboard is of image/bitmap type, then it is saved in the .PNG files. The files are named based on the current date and time, so as to prevent the file name collisions as well as making it easy for you to know when that file was created.
