Python Pyperclip – Paste text from clipboard

In this post we will be creating a Python script that will paste text from the clipboard. To do this we will use the Pyperclip module which enables us to copy and paste clipboard functions. In this example we will be retrieving the contents of the clipboard and then printing this to output.

See the sample of code below where we retrieve the contents of the clipboard and return it to output.

import pyperclip

text_from_clipboard = pyperclip.paste()
