Copy and Paste Unformatted Text with Chrome

Use Chrome? If you do, we’ve just come across one of the smallest but handiest tips we’ve heard in a long time. You know when you copy text from the web to paste elsewhere and you end up taking the structure, style, form and even images of the original with you? Well no longer – when using Google’s browser, copy as normal but hit Ctrl-Shift-V when you want to paste. You’ll get plain, unformatted text – painstakingly removing boxes, bold and bullet points has become a thing of the past!
