Shapeshifter – Free Clipboard manager

Shapeshifter is the best award-winning modern clipboard utility out there for managing your clipboard history in Windows, and the most maintained one as well. It let you copy multiple files in the clipboard. Then you can select from the various copied files that which will be pasted.

  • Elegant design. Shapeshifter adapts to your Aero color theme in Windows, and features a design that is very friendly for the human eye.
  • Exceptional stability. We update Shapeshifter daily to keep you up-to-date with the latest performance improvements and feature updates.
  • No need to change existing habbits. Use CTRL + C to copy, hold down CTRL + V to manage. It truly feels natural and doesn’t require you to get used to anything.
  • Supports any language. We support text copied in every language that exists on earth. Furthermore, Shapeshifter has been translated into Chinese, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Russian and German. New translations are constantly added.

No need to change existing habits

What makes Shapeshifter special is that you don’t change your current habits while using it. To be honest, the term clipboard extender or clipboard history manager would probably be a more fitting description to Shapeshifter than clipboard manager. Pressing CTRL + V normally pastes the last inserted item from the clipboard, but holding down CTRL + V instead displays a beautiful interface allowing you to easily look through your clipboard history, and select the item you need.

Every format in a user-friendly way

There is no limit on the types of data Shapeshifter supports. Text, HTML, videos, files, pictures and even customized data between applications! Distinguishing between clipboard formats in the history is also easy, since every data-type has its own visual representation in the user interface. The program itself comes with adjustable settings, and the user interface adapts to your Windows Aero color from your personal customizations.

Updated constantly
