I want to paste texts copied from host Windows PC to apps inside BlueStacks & vice versa. How to do this?

I am running BlueStacks beta-1...

Today, I installed Clipper Plus in BlueStacks and I noticed that its already storing clips I copied in Windows. I have also tried to copy a text in BlueStacks and paste in Windows. It has confirmed that clipboard has already been shared between BlueStacks & Windows. Great...

Either this feature has been pushed recently or I didn't notice it without Clipper Plus. I tried to paste using Ctrl+V in BlueStacks which still doesn't work. Do paste with proper method: Long-click & choose Paste from menu.

    Do paste with proper method: Long-click & choose Paste from menu That's all to it. Well I am shocked :D Thanks Commented May 19, 2013 at 15:50
  • This option does not work for me on Windows 11 and BlueStack 5. When I copy text into the clipboard on Windows 11, long-click & paste does not insert anything on BlueStack.

I don't know if this will work with BlueStacks specifically, but whenever I want to share a clipboard between my PC and Android device, I use AirDroid.

  • Physically, I am on same device, so I'd like to do Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V..

  • When it comes to AirDroid, how are you really going to connect these two devices?

Use something like Evernote to write and exchange stuff between any two devices, including PC and BlueStacks.
