Have you ever wondered if there was a way you could browse your Clipboard history? Well now there is a way to browse it conveniently from your browser. Just download and install ControlC!

Once it is installed, the first thing it will ask you to do is to set a password to encrypt your data with. Choose something you’ll remember and click Set Password. Then you’ll go to your desktop and open the program. It will load in your browser and ask for your password. Enter it, and you’ll be ready to browse your clipboard data. 

There will be a search field at the top of the page. If you haven’t copied (control + c) any information then the entries will be blank. I did a test, and copied and pasted the tags for an article, and then clicked the Go button to see if it would find it. And it did! 

If you click the Advanced button at the top of the page, it will take you to an array of other settings. You’ll find a tab for Advanced Search Settings,  Settings, and Blacklist. 

Advanced Search Settings will let you define how you search, what types of files will come up in a search, as well as searching by time period, and even url. 

Settings offers you the option to change the way ControlC looks. The drop down box for Admin Theme offers you ten different themes you can use. I’m rather fond of Chocolate Mint. It also lets you choose how things are displayed, and how long it stores the text, files, and images in the database. The default setting is 2 weeks. \

Blacklist lets you add programs to the list that you don’t want included in the database of your history. 

Go check it out for yourself today!
