Paste Clipboard Image or Text as a Standalone File Anywhere in Windows
In a day we perform a lot of copy paste operation. What ever we copy say images or text are temporarily stored in Windows Clipboard. Now the problem arises when we save the copied content. We have to create a file first to paste the content.
Say you have copied a text from web browser or any document. To paste that text you need to create a new text or document file. Similarly with images you will need to paste it first to a image processing application like Paint, Photoshop etc. Then create a new image file. So this process is a bit time taking in overall and may seem difficult when you are in a hurry.
PasteAsFile is a small windows freeware application that will really come handy in such situations. Upon installation it integrates with Context Menu and can be used in any storing location in windows.
