Buffering (from the English buffer) is the organization of data exchange, in particular, input / output of information in computers and other computing devices. This implies the use of temporary storage for the clipboard data. When entering data, some processes / devices write data to the buffer, while others read it. When outputting, the opposite is true, respectively. The issue of increasing buffering directly comes down to increasing the size of the buffer.
The clipboard is a place in the RAM (random access memory) of the computer where data is copied for temporary storage, for example, when working in the "Explorer" application or a text editor. Increasing the buffer can be done by expanding the paging file or by installing programs that expand the capabilities of the buffer.
Increase the paging file. To do this, right-click on the "My Computer" shortcut on the desktop or in the "Start" menu. Select "Properties" from the drop-down menu. Next, go to the tab called "Advanced", left-click on the "Performance Settings" tab and click on "Change" in the "Virtual memory" tab.
Select the required local disk from the list, enter the required values in megabytes in the "Initial size" and "Maximum size" fields, click on "Install". Then restart your PC for the changes to take effect.
Use special programs to expand the capabilities of the buffer. For example, you can download and install the M8 Free Clipboard from the Internet. This program allows you to store various types of data on the clipboard. Its interface is a table that includes 25 cells.
After installing the application, launch it. Now, when copying data to the clipboard, a beep will sound. Pasting data from the buffer occurs by selecting a cell and the "Paste" command. It is also possible to establish an association for each cell with the selected letter of the Latin alphabet. The link to download the M8 Free Clipboard program from the official site is in the "Additional Sources" section at the end of the article.
You can install another program. It's called Clipboard Recorder. Download link in the "Additional Sources" section. When launched, it will be in the system tray and remember all cut or copied text fragments.
To paste the copied fragment, expand the program window from the tray and select the fragment you need. In addition to text fragments, application icons from where they were inserted here are displayed here. The format of the text - font, size, and so on - remains unchanged when pasting text fragments. You can also transfer data and increase the buffer for networking.
