While using command prompt (start->run->cmd), sometime we  need to copy some text from it  for further use or paste a string on the prompt..Here is how to do it..

Pasting into command prompt:

It’s simple.Just copy text from clipboard ,say notepad and right click on command prompt window.You will get the option to paste.

Copy from command prompt:

Right click on the command prompt window and select ‘mark’ as shown in the figure below.



Once you select ‘mark’, you will see a blinking white cursor on top left.


Now select the text you want to copy (right click and drag,the selected text will become white.)and simply right click again(it will show nothing but the selected text is now copied).Open Notepad or any text editor of your choice and paste it.
