Windows 7: A Quick way to paste predetermined text/numbers?

03 May 2012   #1

windows 7 ultimate
Any method of quickly pasting stored information?

Basically I am looking for any way that will enable me to paste a predetermined string of text or numbers e.g. if i pressed F1 then that will automatically paste "hello" and F2 would paste "My Name is" etc

Does anybody know of a way how this could be done?

It does even have to be a hotkey, it could possibly be a rightclick option? (if that makes any sense)

In my work i basically use about the same 10 strings of text very often so I have to literally go and copy and paste hundreds of times a day, hopefully someone will be able to offer some advice. Thanks

Good question, I was thinking about the same thing too today. A good feature for Windows in the future, if not already existing!

You can use AutoHotKey and program Windows hotkey combinations to paste different pieces of text.
