How-to: Paste text without formatting in Chrome

19 February 2011 by J.M.

While copying texts to website forms — like your own blog —, the text formatting gets pasted into the textbox as well. This can get annoying. You want to copy texts without formatting?

Use the Google Chrome browser: There is a secret keyboard shortcut for formatless copying. To copy the plain text in Google Chrome, press the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+V instead of the regular Ctrl+V pasting shortcut. This tells the browser to ignore all formatting and paste nothing but the plain text.
