When working with two computers, a situation may arise that you want to ‘transfer’ the contents of your clipboard on one computer to another computer. CopyCat is a freeware for Windows that will allow you to do so. It will copy your clipboard text data from one computer to another, easily.
Copy and paste between computers
To start, you have to first add the IP address of Computer-1 to the Copycat list of Computer-2, and add the IP address of Computer-2 to the Copycat list of Computer-1. All the clipboard data will be copied from one computer to the other.
Do note that the clipboard will only get copied to another machine only if it has a check next to that machine’s name or IP address.
Now when you copy text to your clipboard, Copycat will automatically transfer it to the clipboards of the machines that you have chosen.
You can download CopyCat from its homepage.
You can also use the following websites to copy clipboard/data/text from one computer to another:
MoveMyText | HeyPasteIt | FriendPaste.
The Windows Clipboard is very basic in nature and does not offer many features. As a result, many free Clipboard alternatives like ArchiveClipboard, Enhanced Clipboard Manager, Clipboardic, Orange Note, Ditto, Clipboard Magic, etc., are available on the internet.
UPDATE: The website states that it is compatible up to Windows XP (32-bit) only. Thanks japp. Don’t know if it will work with Windows Vista and later.
