Save text and images from your clipboard as files with Paste As File [Windows]

[1]Looking for a way to make cut, copy, and paste more useful? Consider this: when designing Windows, Microsoft completely overlooked pasting clipboard data as a file. This means you can’t paste images or text documents to your desktop, and is quite annoying. Paste As File changes that: now, you can paste images and text, and it’s easy as using Paste!

Paste As File adds a single context menu entry. When you have data in your clipboard, just use the Paste As File entry, and the image or text in your clipboard will be loaded up into a file. You can name this file in the floating window that appears. You can paste JPG, PCX, PNG, BMP, TGA, GIF, TIF, and TXT documents currently, but RTF may or may not be planned for future releases.

Overall, Paste As File adds a tiny little function to Windows that really should be native. It really helps contribute to the feeling of a completed operating system over a collection of components, bolted atop each other with a shiny layer of glass.
