The textclipping file extension is typically related to a special text clipping format used on Apple computers since Mac OS 9. It is still used even in the latest macOS versions.

These files are generated when you select and drag selected text on your desktop or in Finder window.

If you want to include this text clipping somewhere else, such as a Word document or an email, you simply drag the file from your desktop into the desired target, and your clipped text is automatically inserted.
