Chrome Clipboard

Note: Improved copy&paste functionality is now integrated in the main Jupyter notebook

This notebook extension adds system clipboard actions pasting images.

A demo showing single-cell copy & paste operating in Chrome is available on youtube:

This extension works only for Chrome, as other browsers do not expose the system clipboard to Javascript.


  • CTRL+V - Paste image from system clipboard

You can specify a target subdirectory using the dragdrop.subdirectory parameter in the notebook configurator. This is the same subdirectory as used in the dragdrop extension.


The image pasted from clipboard will be uploaded to the notebook directory. A unique ID will be generated as image filename.
