Keep Track of Everything on Your Clipboard With the Clipy App for Mac

Mac: As much as we’d love it, Clipy is not a macOS version of Clippy, that little animated Windows paperclip that asks you how you’re doing and gives you useful life advice. It’s a must-have utility that makes your macOS clipboard ten times more powerful, if there was any way to measure that sort of thing.

Actually, there sort-of is. When you install Clipy, the utility saves a historical record of your various copy commands. No longer will you be limited to pasting the very last thing you copied, either by two-finger-tapping your laptop’s trackpad, control-clicking with your mouse, or using good ol’ ⌘+C—to name a few.

Instead, copying items in macOS will now add them to a list of items in Clipy, grouped into chunks of ten by default. When you want to paste something from this history, you simply add a single extra key to your regular paste command: ⌘+Shift+V. A context menu pops up to let you pick what you want to paste from your history, and you’re good to go. And if you just want to paste the very last thing you copied, a regular ⌘+V will do that—no additional steps needed.

If you don’t like having a bulky historical record of your copying, you can use the app’s preferences to restrict the size of your history (limited to 30 by default). If you don’t like the shortcuts you use to pull up your history, you can change those, too. You can even edit the app’s icon in your status bar—or remove it entirely.

More importantly, Clipy lets you create permanent items you can paste whenever you need them. These “Snippets,” as it calls them, can also have their own hotkeys to make it easier to quickly enter the same phrase or instruction over and over.

Clipy is a crazy-powerful clipboard management tool and might very well have saved its namesake—it’s just that good.
