How To Paste Plain Text in Google Chrome without Any Tools

Usually, when you copy some content from one source and paste them to Chrome’s text editor, you are not only bringing over the content but the format that comes with them as well. It’s annoying most of the time. Here is a quick tip that shows you how to strip away all the useless formatting style and only copy and paste the plain text in Chrome.

It’s simple, authentic, and comes right from the browser.

Instead of using Paste command or Ctrl+V keyboard shortcut, use Ctrl + Shift + V to paste the plain text into the text editor in Google Chrome.


It’s an old trick that’s been around since way back but it’s still a useful tip that I am pretty sure not every Chrome user knows. It’s definitely worth mentioning.
