Add Copy Contents To Clipboard To The Right Click

The Windows Clipboard, Is a native utility that allows users to copy data from one source to another, In the form of copy & paste operations. Basically, It temporarily stores the Information (to be copied) In Ram, and releases It when It's pasted. By default, you need to select the contents first, and paste thereafter. Wouldn't It be great If you could simply right-click a file, and copy It's contents without opening It? In this tutorial, I will show you how to do that, by adding the Copy Contents to Clipboard to the right-click context menu.

Whether you're working with an Office document, or navigating online by copying & pasting posts and links on Facebook, we all use the Windows Clipboard during our day-to-day computational tasks. Whilst It's not an Issue when working with a few lines of text, If you have quite a number of files to copy & paste, you'd have to open and close each and every one.

What If you could copy a file's contents without opening It? Well, I will demonstrate how to do this, by adding a Copy Contents to Clipboard option to the right-click of the mouse. Essentially, you'd right-click a file, select this option and paste It's contents- all performed without executing the file.

To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the aforementioned option thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this tutorial. Do note that this applies to .cmd, .bat, .reg, .vbs, .js, .rtf, .log and of course .txt files. So without further delay, let's get this started.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Add Contents.reg file. It will ask whether to add the entries to the Registry, so click Yes.

Step Two:
A message will now be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Hit OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
The Copy Contents to Clipboard option, has now been added to the right-click context menu. Let's put It to the test. I've right-clicked a text file that contains detailed license Information, and selected the option as Illustrated below.

Step Four:
It will now copy the entire contents of the file to the Clipboard. This happens within a split-second, so If you blink, you'll miss It! I was lucky enough to capture the screenshot.

Step Five:
I'll paste the contents Into Notepad. To access It, open the Search bar, enter notepad and click on the search result at the top.

Step Six:
I've now right-clicked on a blank area In Notepad, and hit Paste.

Step Seven:
As you can see, the entire contents of the text file In Step Three above, have been pasted Into Notepad.

Last Step:
If you wish to remove the Copy Contents to Clipboard option from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Contents.reg file and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
If you're working In a busy environment, and perform quite a number of copy & paste operations on multiple files throughout the day, then this will certainly serve your needs. It's objective Is to copy the entire contents of a given file without the need to open It, and It does It with Incredible ease. Do remember that It only supports the file formats, as listed prior to Step One above.
