ShapeShifter is a freeware addition to the Windows clipboard which takes control over your clipboard and ensures memory is not being hogged.

One of the best things about ShapeShifter is its object selection panel. By pressing CTRL and V, you activate the information panel which displays the menu, objects and groups of objects currently on the clipboard. Before releasing the CTRL-V shortcut, you may select which item is to be pasted. If you hold hit the delete key while holding CTRL-V, the item will be deleted from the clipboard.

Other things such as metadata for videos, music and photos are also accessible with ShapeShifter.

Besides being well-designed with a neat layout, this program is fast and efficient; it is optimized to use as little RAM as possible. Users can copy tons of different items to the clipboard without a noticeable effect on system performance.

Overall, ShapeShifter is one of the best (freeware or not) clipboard extensions out there.
