- You will notice a Tip, [Transferred to Clipjump] when you copy something.This will mean that the copy has been succeeded.
- Now, press Ctrl+V(paste action), you will see a tip containing the file or text to be copied.[This is Paste Mode].
If an Image has been copied, a Window showing your image will pop-up.
You will have to release Ctrl to perform actions. (You will know later)
Here, Release Ctrl to paste.

The tip should change to a Cancel Message. This is [Cancel Mode]
Release Ctrl to confirm.
- To Delete Current Clipboard, press X twice in Paste Mode or once in Cancel Mode.
The tip should now change to a Delete Message. This is [Delete Mode]
Release Ctrl to confirm.
To Delete all Clips, press X thrice in Paste Mode OR twice in Cancel Mode OR once in Delete Mode. The tip should change to a Delete All message.This is [Delete All Mode]
Release Ctrl and then confirm the confirmation tip with Y to proceed.

- Also, note that Cancel Mode,Delete Mode and Delete All Mode are inter-related.
The program cycles through these modes when you press X while holding Ctrl.
So, pressing X while holding Ctrl in Delete All Mode will switch back to Cancel Mode.

TIP - To disable a shortcut , set it to

Clipjump's Clipboard History tool can be a real life saver when it's time comes.
This tool stores record of all the clipboard items transfered to Clipjump in the last "x" days. The "x" days can be selected a/c your preference from the settings editor.
To open the Clipboard History tool , you can also use the keyboard shortcut - Win+C other than the Tray Menu shortcut.
To load full-size clip from the list provided by History tool, double-click on the item.
To delete a history item , Right-click on it and select "Delete".
Tip - To view only Clipboard images in the History list, you can filter the listing something like
[Double-click to view image]
When the checkbox 'Partial' is checked , the History Tool follows a partial checking pattern. Now you will be able to filter the Histroy List with
Spacedelimited terms and only those clips will be shown which have all those space delimited terms in them.
The Preview Window
The History Preview Window previews the requested history clip. It supports preview of all types of clips from text to images. When previewing text , you have the option to search for terms (Ctrl+F) and the searching algorithm inhibits the 'Partial Searching' setting from the History Tool.
When previewing images , you can enlarge the image by resizing the preview windows . Maximize it to see the maximum possible size of the image preview.
Press Space after choosing your desired Clipboard item in the history Gui to paste it directly to the underlying window.
This method necessarily closes the History GUI.
TIP - To force Insta-Paste to write to Clipboard (Clipjump) when it is used, change instapaste_write_clipboard to 1 in the [Advanced] section of Settings.ini file.
When in Incognito mode, the Clipboard history will not be captured by Clipjump and the Clipjump icon in the System tray will fade (become greyyish).
This feature can be very useful for maintaining Privacy.
To ever enable Incognito mode, use the Tray menu.
Disabling the History tool - Change the
Number of days to keep items in Historysetting to 0 to permanently disable History tool. This will make Clipjump automatically start with the Incognito Mode ON as a symbol to show that History is not captured.
Please note that disabling the history tool in the way as said above will not delete old history items unlike to the fact that if you change the
Number of days to keep items in Historyfrom 50 to 2, the history older than 2 days will be deleted by Clipjump.
