In my work I constantly use Control C - then Control V to COPY and PASTE Highlighted Text.

Is there a way in XP, or an add on program that will let me set up say - 4 or 5 Hot Keys of Highlighted Text.

I.E. I Control C then - Hit F1 set the text, then Control V - F1, to paste that text from Memory, and be able to
have F2, F3, F4, have different saved texts, so when I fill out forms I can do it quickly without having to Copy
Each Time?

Thank you....

there's no way in windows to do that specifically....

if the data is always the same...you could look into autohotkey....basically gives you the ability to make any hotkey you want and make them "context aware" (i.e. if internet explorer is open do <insert action> when i press/type <insert hotkey or phrase>)...i use it alot on the forums and it's pretty handy....
