You can still download at
Small ClipX iconClipX

Its just 195KB file
In memory - 448K with the smallest footprint of similar alternatives.
And it has the simplicity of use, yet having all the features in the 'configure'.


Dead product

It appears that the company behind this (Blue Mars) has gone under. Currently searching for the best alternative as there are some bugs with ClipX on 64-bit Windows Vista or 7 that were not ironed out prior to the death blow.

I agree, it's a pity!
Best tools of this kind are CLCL and ClipX but both have been discontinued and still have some little glitches... All other clipboard managers out there are bloated software IMHO and are usually slow to use (they open a window and you have to select the clip etc....) compared to a simple & fast (pop-up) menu!

A new project is born though:

ClipX v1.0.3.8 on ...
Win-7 PRO 64-bit ... since Aug-2017
Win-7 HP 64-bit ... since 2012
Win-7 HP 32 bit ... since 2005

No problems ... :)
