One-click copy paste

Previously I’ve created an AutoIt script to enable one-click copy paste but unfortunately I lost it in my old blog. By request I’ve created a new, and in my opinion even better than the previous one.


To use it, simply select some text, press the hotkey and press the hotkey again to start pasting. By default, the hotkey is F4. Below is the source (I leave it up to you to install AutoIt).

Save this as an .au3 file and you should be able to run it by double-clicking on it (a good idea is to drop it in the auto-start folder if you don’t want to start it manually each time you start). It is possible to compile the .au3 file to a standalone executable that doesn’t require AutoIt to be installed, I haven’t done so as anti-virus and anti-spyware generally blocks it and you’d have to jump trough hoops to enable it.


Here is a direct download for the .au3 file if you don’t want to copy/paste the source code above.
