It can also be used simply as a mechanism for reviewing/modifying what's currently in the clipboard prior to it being sent to a remote machine. Demonstrates one way of building a customized window/dialog using IE and handling user interaction within the custom dialog (see the VBScript user guide here:

Currently the only example script is VBScript.
