Paste From One Computer To Another.


Most users have encountered the situation where they want to copy some text such as a product license key, from one computer to another. Often this means having to create a text file and then transferring the file to the other computer using a USB stick or CD. Here's a simple alternative that works:

HeyPasteIt! is a free web service that allows you to paste the text onto a clipboard on their site where it is then stored at a unique address. You can then access that clip from another computer using that address, copy the text and then paste it to a file or where ever.

I tried it and it worked well. It even handled multi-page clips. However you can't copy and paste images - it's text only. Another reservation is the site doesn't mention how long the clips are kept for. However my test clips were still available a week after creation and that's more than enough for the intended use.

For example:

Go to their site & type this code
: 5C7 into this box on there site to see what I pasted earlier



This site is well worth bookmarking. One day you'll need this.
