Paste from most recently copied items using shortcuts w/o having to open the ClipboardFusion interface?

I'm looking for a Windows clipboard manager (CM) with the following feature for my Window-using colleagues, and I've yet to find one. I'm wondering if Clipboard Fusion will fit the bill. [I use a Mac, and many of the CM's for it already have this feature.]

Without having to open the CM's interface (the CM would of course have to be running, to capture the copy history), I'd like to be able to paste from among the 10 most recently copied items using shortcuts.

E.g., if I wanted to paste entries nos. 1, 2, and 10 from the clipboard history (where "1" is the most recent), I'd like to be able to select the destination with my mouse, hold down some function key or function-key combo (e.g., Win-Alt), and then just hit 1, 2, and 0 in succession.
Since I want to be able to do this without having to open the CM's interface, I assume these would have to be global shortcuts.

Additionally, I'd prefer it if the key binding didn't release after I press the first number, i.e., I'd like to be able to keep Win-Alt (or whatever the combo is) depressed and then hit 1, 2, and 0. But it is possible this not possible with global shortcuts in Windows. See, e.g.: https://sourceforge.net/p/ditto-cp/discussion/287511/thread/b474c37898/]

[I'd also like it to be able to paste screenshots as well as text, and be able to persistently store the last 1,000 copied items ("persistently" = not be lost when the computer reboots).]

We have quick history and local pinned item selects that you can create key combinations for, to paste the first 10 items in each list without the manager window being open. The keys will need to be de-pressed though, for it to paste each item.

You can copy and paste screenshots as well, and set the history to 1000 items as well.

Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. Can you give me a link to directions (preferably including screenshots) so I can see what it takes to assign global hotkeys for pasting the most recently-copied items? I couldn't find those on your website.

You can find that here, under the "Quick Clipboard History Select" bullet: https://www.clipboardfusion.com/Help/#settings-clipboardhistory

Thanks!

Thanks, got it. I use the Quick Clipboard History Select HotKey Modifier to set the HotKeys, and enable Auto-paste on Quick History Select to have the item I select pasted automatically.

Just to confirm: The HotKeys I select with Quick Clipboard History Select HotKey Modifier are Global HotKeys, which means I won't need to open the Cliboard Fusion popup to get them to work, correct?

[I.e., with Global HotKeys, while Clipboard Fusion would need to be running, it wouldn't need to be the active window for this to work.]

Yep, that's correct

A colleague just tried out Clipboard Fusion, and reported the Global HotKeys are only available in the Pro (paid) version. Is that correct?

This should be available in the free version. Is anything greyed out in the ClipboardFusion Settings > HotKeys tab for him?

Thanks!
