Most of the times we want to copy, paste on the command prompt, but there is no shortcut working on it like CTRL+C and so on.
But here is the simplest way to select, copy and paste from/to the windows command prompt.
Follow the procedure described below.
- Open the Windows Command Prompt.
- Perform a Right click on the command prompt window’s title bar, and hit the properties option.
- Now select the QuickEdit Mode option.
- Hit OK, a confirm dialog will appear. Select Save properties for future windows with same title option, and hit the OK button.
It will enable the command prompt Quick-Edit mode.
Now, the way to select, copy and paste from a quick edit mode enabled command prompt window is explained below:
To copy something from the command prompt, just use the pointer to select the text (just like you’re selecting the text from a Word Page), and perform a right click or hit the Enter button thereafter. It will copy the selected text.
Now, to paste anything into command prompt, just perform a right click on the location in command prompt where you want the text to be pasted.
