TwinkiePaste is a lightweight and user-friendly piece of software which aims to increase your work productivity on a computer by allowing you to paste various strings of text from clipboard, thus saving you the time it would take you to look for these specific items or type them manually.
The program is fairly simple to understand and handle. It launches in the system tray, letting you access it whenever you want to alter any of its settings or add items to clipboard, but otherwise staying out of your way when you are working.
It can run at Windows startup, so even if you forget about it, it will still be there to help you with your daily tasks. TwinkiePaste enables you to set a keyboard shortcut which will call it out whenever you need to paste something in the documents you are handling.
By pressing the previously assigned keys, a context menu will be displayed allowing you to select the option you want to use: ‘Paste From Clipboard’ one of the added phrases, view your ‘Clipboard History’ and add the elements you need by double-clicking them, or ‘Edit Phrases / Settings’, if you need to add supplementary entries.
The ‘PhraseEditor’ window enables you to create new records (‘Phrases’) which can actually be quite lengthy pieces of text. These can be added as ‘Formatted’ or ‘Unformatted’ text or from what you currently have in your clipboard.
Moreover, you can assign each ‘Phrase’ various ‘Macros’, meaning additional actions which can be performed when pasting an element, like activating another keyboard layout, insert the date and time, the month name or number, name of the current day of the week, your Windows username or the year.
To conclude, TwinkiePaste is a useful and easy to use application that can save you considerable amounts of time, by enabling you to save multiple elements in your clipboard and paste them when required, with just a few keyboard actions.
