Copy'n'paste works differently in the Command Prompt window - but it DOES
work for me when I remember the steps.
First, right-click in the CP window and click Mark. Then use the mouse or
the arrow keys to highlight the area containing the text to be copied. And
then, do NOT use the usual Ctrl+C to copy! Just press Enter. This puts the
text onto the clipboard, from where it can be pasted back into the CP window
or into Notepad or just about anywhere else. To paste into Notepad, use
Ctrl+V, as usual.
To paste from the clipboard into the CP window, right-click the mouse and
select Paste. This will insert the clipboard contents at the typing cursor,
no matter where the mouse is pointed.
If this doesn't work for you, please tell us, step by step, exactly HOW you
are trying to copy and to paste. Saying, "I try to copy..." does not tell
us the steps you are performing. I know it sounds obvious, but it is not.
