SQL SERVER - Cycle Clipboard Ring in SSMS - SQL in Sixty Seconds #045 - Video 60x60 Copy and Paste! In other words – CTRL + C and CTRL + V – these two are our famous shortcuts for this new age. Remember copy paste is not a bad thing, but plagiarism is for sure. I rely on a lot of Copy Paste when I am doing development. There are so many templates, code or name of the objects (tables, stored procedure) etc., which we need when we are doing development.

There are often scenarios when we want to paste more than one value without keep on going back again and again to copy them. I was very much delighted when I discovered the shortcut of the Cycle Clipboard Ring and Paste it.  However, this shortcut is not very popular among developers – CTRL+SHIFT+V. I have created a short video which describes the same.
