I just want Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V work across all devices: from Windows to Android and from Android to Windows. Be it just a text or a file (like this in pushbullet, but for pushbullet, universal copy paste is premium feature.)

I am trying AirDroid. What all I found related to this is this: enter image description here

I have to do Ctrl+C, then open this app, go to relevant device tab and click these buttons.

Q1. Is this the procedure? Cant I just do Ctrl+C on windows and long press and paste on android. Also copying from Android's clipboard to Windows did not work while the other way worked everytime.

Q2. Is this any way around. Is there any better software which does it for free, for text and files, without lag, on same network devices?


I personally use MyPhoneExplorer. It is a free software without any ads or malware. Actually it is a full fledged PC suite for Android. It supports universal clipboard, screen mirroring & many other things.


Well according to me you can use airdroid web for that purpose but long press thing isn't going to work. Access it from web.airdroid.com

  • It seems pretty unlikely that a website will automatically sync anything you put on the clipboard on the host OS, especially without a specified browser or plugin. Please explain more. – Matthew Read Jan 19 '17 at 21:37
  • In case I open this website on Windows OS and login with my Airdroid Id on both my phone and web profile then website will provide interface to me where it has online widget which shows the content of your mobile's clipboard and we can send anytext from windows to mobile's clipboard also , not only texts we can send files Also using two modes that is same connection mode and remote connection mode, to understand more Please use their product. – code-monk08 Jan 20 '17 at 2:14
  • I just want Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V work in Windows and long press copy paste in Android. Even if there is absolutely no UI interface, its fine. (I have installed Airdroid play store app and also Windows app.) – Maha Jan 20 '17 at 7:00
