Copy-Paste Pure Text

I hate when I copy some text, paste it into the document or mail and it is copied with formatting (bold colorful huge words). So I started to look some extension, or app, or desktop software that allows to copy pure text without any formatting. And I found, that there is actually exists a key combination that works without any software!
In Windows You should just copy-paste the text with formatting, select the copied part, click Ctrl + Spacebar and formatting is gone. Unfortunately this does not remove hyperlinks or tables.
In Mac OS You should copy the text and paste it with hot keys Cmd + Alt + Shift + V and text is pasted without formatting. Unlike Windows combination this also removes hyperlinks and tables.
In both OS's these hot keys are working everywhere: in text editors, in browsers, in mail clients etc.
