    How to run a program and copy text to the clipboard


    Hi everyone,
    I'm running a program that requires me to enter a Serial number every time a start it. So can i start it and automatically copy my SN to the clipboard so I can paste it right away, and I used to run the program from task bar shortcut.

    any way I use this .bat file:
    @echo off
    start "Program" "C:\Program Files\program\program.exe"
    start "SN" "C:\Program Files\program\xxxxxx.txt"

    so it opens the text file right away, but I want to copy it right away without having to switch to the text file and close it

    :)

    Where is the Clipboard?

    The clipboard is not something you can find. It is (at least on the windows phone) an inaccessible part of the phone, where your last copied text is stored.



    This is how it works.



    • You highlight a text, and say COPY.
    • the phone OS puts information in the CLIPBOARD.
    • You go another area where text can be input and tap PASTE. Whatever information is in the CLIPBOARD gets pasted.

    clipboard

    Hi Randy,

    This might be possible if there is an option from the app to copy the file path of each clipboards. As per our research, the clipboard manager lets you copy texts but not images. We suggest checking the functionalities of the clipboard manager and contacting
    the app developer directly to have better assistance on how copy the clipboards.

    Let us know if you need anything else. We're here to help.

    How to run a program and copy text to the clipboard

    C# Question: How to make Programs Copy text from websites

    hello, i wanna make a program that adds/Sets new Text in Clipboard but the text that is getting copied is too large and visual studio does not support that, so what I wanna do is that I add the text using Pastebin and then connect the Pastebin (Raw) URL to
    the program and then each time button1, for example, is clicked, the button will set their previous Clipboard (Copied Text) to the text that was from the Pastebin URL
