As a developer, I have to copy and paste. A lot! Sometimes I need to copy several items from different locations and then paste them into the same file. This can be very tedious with the traditional Ctrl+C then Ctrl+V process. To help remedy this, I use Comfort Clipboard Pro, a very powerful clipboard manager. I realize for some this may be a bit of overkill or they don’t wish to spend the money on a solution.
Thankfully, Visual Studio 2019 has a feature which can help. Simply copy several items in a row using your preferred method — from the file menu or with a key command. Then place your cursor where you wish for the copied items to be pasted. Next, go to Edit in the file menu and select the Show Clipboard History option (alternately you can press Ctrl+Shift+Insert).
This will display a popup list of the things you’ve just copied. Click one of the items in the list.
The item you selected will be pasted into your file where your cursor currently sits.
That’s it! Quick. Simple. It didn’t require any additional software. And it didn’t cost you anything. Hope that helps!
