Click To View All, or add your own!I was introduced to Clipmate in March of 1999. I bought it immediately after the 30 day trial. I thought then that it was the most useful and versatile piece of software I had on my machine. I've been 'selling' it ever since and never have I received anything but positive feedback on this 'utility'. I bought a new laptop and began installing software but found I was getting more and more tense .. then the lightbulb came on and I realized I hadn't installed Clipmate. It's not a flashy piece of software, it just quietly runs in the background doing what I ask/need it to do. It truly is indespensible. I've been unable to work for about a year and I didn't think that I'd be using this software as much as I did when I was working but I use it more - I have to minimize my time on the computer to about 2 hours per day. So, when I'm surfing on a topic, I can just copy what I want, Clipmate handles it. I can get a lot more done when I don't have to stop and do the paste part of the exercise. I use it as a kind of diary of what I did when because I don't delete until I want to. Clipmate has saved me so many times when the only place I could find the info I was searching for was in Clipmate or one of its archives. And, let us not foget filling out forms - what a lifesaver - the info I need is in one little place and I don't have to bounce back and forth from form top to bottom to get info already entered. I love Clipmate - I recommend it as a foundation pice of software for any system. It should be eom - have you talked to Dell? Thank you so much for making my life easier for these last 7 years and for many in the future.

ClipMate on Vista

ClipMate on Vista, with Aero Glass

Not surprisingly, many users are asking us if ClipMate runs on Vista.  Sure it does!  We've been running ClipMate on Vista since the December 2006.  Like they say, "you can't build it, unless you live it!"  ClipMate 7 runs quite well on Vista, and does take advantage of some of the neat new features, particularly the "bulletproof" ClipBoard notification system in Vista, which prevents lost clipboard events.

 

UPDATE: ClipMate also runs great on Windows7, Windows 8, and 8.1. 

Known Issues

  • Installation - FIXED in 7.2 and Later!
  • New to ClipMate? Find out all about it here.

    Skins - the skins library is causing trouble (crashes). Don't use the skins on Vista.  The installer for ClipMate 7.2 won't even let you install the skins.  Good news - ClipMate looks great on Vista, without skins.
  • DEP - FIXED In 7.3
  • Clipbar on Vista64 - You cannot run the ClipBar on 64-bit Vista.  (FIXED IN 7.5!!)

Screenshots

Cool Stuff

Sounds too loud or too soft?  Vista lets you control the volume for individual applications. When ZDNet tested this, apparently they like their ClipMate sounds quieted down a bit. See this screenshot in their slideshow, where ClipMate is clearly visible.
