xNeat Clipboard Manager is a free program for Windows that keeps a record of the last ten clipboard records while it is running.

The xNeat Clipboard Manager is already the second Windows Clipboard Manager that we have reviewed here on Ghacks in the past couple of days.

Clipomatic is a memory efficient software that did the job just fine but was a little bit stuck in the last century so to say. This should not be that of a problem for a clipboard manager because the interface should not get too much in the way of the copy and pasting process anyway.

The xNeat Clipboard Manager

The xNeat Clipboard Manager comes with a shiny modern looking interface with neat looking rounded buttons. It offers the same functionality as Clipomatic more or less though; It stores additional entries in the clipboard, the default value is ten just like the value that Clipomatic uses. This value can be changed in the program's options. You find a link to the options in the program's main interface.

The original functionality remains the same meaning that users can still copy and paste a stored item with the CTRL-C and CTRL-V shortcuts. The additional clipboard entries can be opened with CTRL-Shift-V which opens a small menu that displays the stored xNeat Clipboard Manager entries for quick pasting actions.

You can use the arrow keys and enter to select on entry that you want to paste to the underlying application, or use the mouse instead to select a record from the clipboard.

It is rather surprisingly that this Clipboard Manager uses only about 1.5 Megabytes of computer memory when the interface window is open, and only 300 Kilobytes when it is minimized in the system tray.

Update: xNeat Clipboard Manager has not been updated since 2008. Please note that the program does not work on newer versions of Windows anymore. I tested it on a Windows 10 machine, and it installed fine, but failed to load.

We suggest you use a different program for the job. Check out Clipboard Help+Spell, a powerful clipboard manager for instance, Remembr, a basic clipboard manager, or Clipple.

    I’ve been using Kana Clip for years. Simply assign the hotkey to one of my extra mouse buttons and the clipboard is never far away. I also like the permanent clip feature.

    It looks like xNeat clipboard manager only supports text, or am I missing something? Well, I’m going back to old and trusted ClipX.
