Chrome Protip: Pasting text without formatting

Google Chrome Logo

If you find yourself stripping formatting from text you just pasted to make it look presentable, you’ll enjoy this neat feature of Google Chrome. Whenever you want to paste something as ‘plain text’ simply use Ctrl-Shift-V (instead of Ctrl-V) on a Windows machine, or Ctrl-Option-V if you’re on a Mac. Now you can be sure that the text you just pasted doesn’t contain any hidden styling that is often pasted along with text.
