The software program runs quietly in the background and can only be seen in the task manager or by pressing keyboard shortcuts. The default Windows clipboard can still be used by pressing CTRL V to copy an item to the clipboard and CTRL C to copy it from the clipboard.

CCCCtrlC comes into play if the user presses the same keyboard shortcut for a longer period of time. It will then display a small clipboard selection screen in the lower right part of the computer screen (even if the Windows Taskbar is located elsewhere). The selection will display underscores and Cs. Each position stands for one clipboard entry where entries with an underscore are blank slots while those with a C are slots that are already filled with information.

Pressing and holding CTRL C will then cycle through the slots and save the information in the selected slot once the keys are released. Pressing and holding CTRL V on the other hand will cycle through all slots and paste the information of the active data field once the keys are released.

A few additional hotkeys are available. CTRL Insert X will erase all extended clipboard entries but keep the standard clipboard entry. CTRL CV will display the help file while CTRL Insert V will display a system tray icon that offers the options to suspend the hotkeys, pause the functionality of the software or to exit it.

CCCCtrlC uses less than four Megabytes of computer memory. It is available at the Donation Coders website.
