In this tutorial we show how to use ScrambleOnClick to encrypt and decrypt text. This tutorial starts after it has been installed and is run for the first time.
If you've already installed ScrambleOnClick then select ScrambleOnClick Settings from the pop-up menu.
If you've not already created a master password then click the Create button. If you've already set a master password then you can skip this step or click Modify to change your master password.
Enter a master password and then click Save. The master password is used to protect your encryption keys.
After saving your master password you're returned to the settings page. Next, click Miscellaneous.
Here you can see other settings, e.g. to automatically encrypt or decrypt when Ctrl-C-C is pressed. Click the Save button.
Now we are going to set an encryption key. Right-click on the EncryptOnClick icon in the tray and select Encryption Keys Manager from the pop-up menu.
Enter an encryption key then click the Save button.
You can now enter a Title for the password. As you can have multiple encryption passwords this helps you choose the correct one in future. Click the Save button.
You've now got a default encryption password.
Click Ok to save it.
Now we'll show how to encrypt some text. In this example we run Notepad and enter some text.
Next we select the text (Ctrl-A) and press Ctrl-C-C to copy it to the clipboard and have ScrambleOnClick encrypt it.
ScrambleOnClick will appear so you can choose which encryption key to use.
Select an encryption key then click the Apply button.
ScrambleOnClick has now encrypted the text in the Windows clipboard.
We can now replace our clear text with the encrypted text by simply pasting the Windows clipboard contents.
Now we have our encrypted text. To decrypt this we select all the text and press Ctrl-C-C
ScrambleOnClick now decrypts the text and pop-ups to show the decrypted text now in the Windows clipboard. Click OK to close the window.
We can now replace our encypted text with the clear text by simply pasting the Windows clipboard contents.
Now we have our original unencrypted text.
