ClipboardNotifier is a free software to get notification whenever any change is made to the clipboard. Whenever you perform cut/copy action, a small pop-up notification is visible on desktop screen. This ensures that particular content is added to clipboard successfully. The software sits in the system tray silently and monitors the clipboard activity. It also doesn’t consume a lot of system resources (takes around 4-5 MB system memory to work).
It might have happened with you many times that while trying to cut/copy some text or other item using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+X or right click content menu, cut/copy action is skipped accidentally. May be because you didn’t press the correct hotkey or Copy option is not clicked when using right-click context menu. This software will help you in that case. If item is not added to clipboard, no notification will appear. So, you will come to know that item that you wanted to copy to clipboard is not added actually.
In the recording above, you can see that when I copied selected text and folder, a notification is visible ensuring that item is added to clipboard. The notification is visible for 1-2 seconds only. After that, it is disappeared automatically. You cannot change notification duration, color, or icon.

The software is handy when you need to cut/copy items frequently. Whether you are on a webpage or working with desktop items, whenever some item is added to Windows clipboard, it will show notification. I wish it had come with option to change notification duration, opacity, color, etc., but no such options are available. May be, such features will be added in future. Currently, a default notification is shown on desktop screen when something is added to clipboard.
