The link is to a TechNewsWorld.com review of ClipMate, a fairly pricey, but very nice clipboard extender for Windows XP.
I have applications for just that purpose I use in Linux. It is amazing how much having a small selection of items in the clipboard can speed some work. Those are fairly simple and usually hold 10 items or so. That's all I need. Real power users might want something like ClipMate, but there are also myriad alternatives at places like SnapFiles.com and NoNags.com that provide various levels of services. In Windows, I seem to drift between one app and the next, never really settling on any one for the long term.
I'd recommend you read the review to get an idea of what is available and, should you decide ClipMate is more power than you need, go find another application at no cost.
