    Works again, as in using NOTEPAD? Or using any app, for example ULTRAEDIT?

    Yes, it should now again.

    Works on a TXT file with ULTRAEDIT set as default. Great, thanks!

    The html one doesn't work unless you do the same:

    Code:
    ;For HTML files
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.html\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.html\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    I've also made a portion for .css files, you can throw it in the tut if you feel like it:

    Code:
    ;For CSS files
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.css]
    "PerceivedType"="document"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.css\shell]
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.css\shell\Copy Contents]
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.css\shell\Copy Contents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    The .css association is not present by default but it should add automatically.

    BTW: This tut is a good one! Very handy for me!

    A note of interest:

    On a UWP jump list, only .txt files are copy-able... (and there's no clipboard icon in the right click menu)

    On a Win32 jump list, all files are copy-able...

    Hello @Brink,

    I thought it would be nice to include PowerShell in the REG file so I decided to put the code together and then post it for your consideration to include it so others could also benefit.

    However, I am having a problem incorporating it!

    I have tried this [ plus a few others ] . . .
    Code:
    ;For PS1 files
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ps1file\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ps1file\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    I can't seem to find where it is situated. I have obviously looked for . . .
    Code:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.ps1
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.ise
    . . . etc etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello @Paul Black,

    Hmm, I'm not having much luck for .ps1 files either.

    Well, it has taken me a while, but here it is . . .
    Code:
    ;For PS1 files
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    If you can check that it is OK please and whether or not it will be a good addition to the Tutorial.

    Great find @Paul Black. I was playing with it using the Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1 key earlier, but I kept getting a no program associated error with the context menu for some reason.

    This works though. Tutorial now updated to include the context menu for .ps1 files.
