In version 0.81 of PowerToys, the Advanced Paste. To activate it, all you need is a simple combination of keys: simultaneously press the Windows Button next to Shift and then V (Windows + Shift + V).

By default, Advanced Paste maintains a detailed history of everything that has been previously copied, enabling quick access to this information. Within the options available for collage, it offers three different modes:

  • In markdown format;
  • In JSON format.

To enable the Paste With AI option, you need to go into the software settings. When activated, Advanced Paste will present you with a specific field where you can specify how you want the copied text to be formatted, depending on your preference or need.

The options are vast: you can request that the excerpt be summarized, translated into another language, that the code be automatically generated or even that the tone with which the text is written be modified.

To start using this function, you need to enter your API key provided by OpenAI in the PowerToys settings. Additionally, you must purchase AI credits. The minimum initial investment is US$5, which, converted into Brazilian currency, is equivalent to approximately R$26.

In terms of consumption, Paste With AI usage is calculated in tokens. In the most economical plan offered, you will find that one million input tokens cost $0.50, while output tokens cost $1.50.

This results in around 750 thousand words. Taking this into account, it is easy to see that with an amount of just US$5 you will be able to use the function for a long time. But it is still surprising that they are now even charging you to use the famous Ctrl+C Ctrl+V.

It is important to make a clear distinction at this point: the use of Paste With AI is not linked to the need to subscribe to the service ChatGPT Plus.
