I wrote a little script for a Reddit user on /r/techsupport that allows him to download a youtube Video with copying the URL and just starting the script. (Download with youtube-dl https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/)
The Clipboard part was the most fun and I guess some people can use it.
I basically create a WinForm which I won’t show and use the System.Windows.Forms.Textbox „paste()“ function to get the text:
<code>add-type -assemblyname system.windows.forms $form = new-object System.Windows.Forms.TextBox $form.multiline = $true $form.paste() $form.Text</code>
Your Clipboard content will be in $form.Text
