Thanks — nice expansion of the default Microsoft Windows clipboard … instead of using Notepad or other temporary storage repurposing for cut-and-paste ( I’ve even used the [ Run ] line to hold things I want to paste in a moment, but need more than one thing in my cut-and-paste buffer ).
Right-click the Unlimited Clipboard system-tray icon to register, use any name.
[ Alt ][ V ] is the default quick way to pop up the Unlimited Clipboard to see it’s contents ( or left-click the system-tray icon, or right-click the system-tray icon and select [ Show ] to pop up the Unlimited Clipboard ).
Double-click an item in the Unlimited Clipboard to past it at the cursor of whatever window was open ( or right-click an item and select [ Paste ].
The standard Windows clipboard behavior seems unaltered, where [ Ctrl ][ V ] pastes the last [ Ctrl ][ C ] copy.
Unlimited Clipboard offers more than just the last copy, you can [ Ctrl ][ C ] dozens of times on different things to stuff Unlimited Clipboard, INCLUDING IMAGES ( ! ) and FILENAMES ( !! ), and they each will appear in the Unlimited Clipboard window for reuse on demand ( so long as the place where the cursor is can accept pasting the clipboard contents ).
It seems to use only a trickle of occasional CPU, and only 6 to 15 KB RAM, and appears clean to VirusTotal.
YL Computing ( now PCClean. io ) has another well done offering — I have no negatives.
I do have a recommendation for a subsequent improvement:
If you exit Unlimited Clipboard, everything except the last clip will be “lost” ( the last copy is in the Windows buffer anyway ).
It would be nice to offer to save individual or complete contents of the Unlimited Clipboard as a document ( RTF if including images ), or even as an Unlimited Clipboard history “clipboard” for reuse after reboot, for example.
If I have dozens of items in Unlimited Clipboard that I’d like to reuse, but I have to reboot before completing the project I’m working on, I’d have to first open a blank document in another programs, then paste each clip as a separate double-click, and then save the document, then open the document again after reboot, then highlight and copy each item again to refill my Unlimited Clipboard back to the way it was.
So, YL Computing, I’d like Unlimited Clipboard history documents that are savable and reusable on demand ( default name of current date and time is okay, but anything in a [ ..\Documents\Unlimited Clipboard ] folder should auto list as reloadable, perhaps )

So simple. So elegant. So overdue. Just a great little enhancement that allows you to efficiently cut-paste and copy-paste from multiple sources without overwriting what’s already on your clipboard. Easy to manage, easy to use. What’s not to like?Jan 1, 2019 at 4:23 am #12824711
And thanks for the heads up, Peter Blaise!Jan 1, 2019 at 4:40 am #12824810
This looks like a nice little utility; something I’ve wanted for a while.
Once I figured out how to call up the older clipboard items (Ctrl + V), it was a snap.
@jerome — Works fine on my WIN 10 Home (64 bit).
Thanks SoS & Win Utilities.Jan 1, 2019 at 12:02 pm #12826883

Some seem to be finding this download okay but my virus checker, Kaspersky, has detected a trojan. Not sure if this is overplay on Kaspersky part or if it really is a trojan. I notice that one or two others have picked up on this file too. Info below:
