Copy and Paste
Did you know there are two ways to handle copy and paste in the Command Prompt window? The default method is to choose Command Box, Edit, Mark. Then you use the shift-arrow key to select the portion of the window you want to copy. After you make the selection, press Enter to copy it to the Clipboard.

If you select QuickEdit mode, you can use the mouse to select the portion of the window you want to copy, then simply press Enter to send it to the Clipboard.

To select QuickEdit mode, choose Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click the Console icon. When the Console Windows Properties dialog box opens, click the Options tab. Select the check box labeled QuickEdit Mode and then click OK to record your selection and close the dialog box.
