Publisher description for Remove Clipboard Formatting

Remove Clipboard Formatting program icon

The purpose of this small utility is twofold: It removes all clipboard formats except the text format (CF_TEXT) from the clipboard and then pastes the results. Although this may sound stupid, this is a great alternative for standard copy & paste operations in Office applications (e.g., MS Word). Without this utility, one needs to select 'Edit' | 'Paste Special' | 'Unformatted Text' to achieve this. It converts a handle of type HDROP that identifies a list of files on the clipboard to the plain list of files. This means that it becomes possible to use CTRL+C from Explorer to obtain the file names in a text editor or a 'Open' dialog!
