Have you ever copied some text from a web page or a document and then wanted to paste it as simple text into another application without getting all the formatting from the original source? PureText makes this simple by adding a new Windows hot-key (default is WINDOWS+V) that allows you to paste text to any application without formatting.
I am not sure if any of you remember my review of Send To Notepad in which i mentioned i was glad that i found the program because it made my life when removing format from text. Truthfully that program was kinda cumbersome to use and i was always looking for something better, well now i have found it. Its name is PureText and pretty much does the same job as Send To Notepad except it does it faster because you don't have to paste text into the notepad and copy it again, PureText does this automatically. just copy a text and then simply press the hot-key (the default one is Windows+V) in the window in which you want to paste the text without the formatting, is easy and very quick to do. Since the program doesn't require any installation you can carry it in your pendrive or if you want to you can configure it to run at startup. which is a pretty good option because PureText doesn't use many system resources, just between 2 to 3MB in my PC.
In conclusion PureText can be a time saver for people that need to get rid of the formatting of copied text quickly, like for example me. Available for all Windows versions.
