I use this extension daily on all my workstations. I am able to Copy (Ctrl-C) anything and then use keyboard shortcut Alt-Z to show the last x number (confiburable) of copies display in a pop-up.

Anything in ditto can be found by searching in the open dialog box. This feature is invaluable when trying to find content from a couple of days ago. Ditto starts on system startup and is always just available.

I have tried other clipboard manager tools, but this one is just small, easy and allows me copy/paste text, code, images from days in the past.
