Windows 7 Plain Paste Keyboard Shortcut
When copying or pasting content Windows attempts to preserve formating between applications. In my line of work this is mostly a hindrance and requires an intermediate Notepad copy and paste step.
However there is hope! and it comes in the form of a small utility named Pure Text. I suggest you place this tiny 28KB program into your Startup folder or on your desktop. Once running you can access its settings through the task tray icon.
In the program's options you can specify a new Windows system wide keyboard shortcut for plain text paste; 'Win' + 'V' seem like a good choice.
Let's hope that Windows 8 will have this built in
