Copy/paste in Windows cmd: quick edit mode

Even If I have worked with Windows XP or Windows 2000-2003, there is one thing that anoying me a lot: thecopy and paste operations in the dos prompt (cmd).

Usually, you have to go to the right clik menu to select and then copy some text in your DOS windows to paste some lines elsewhere.

Well, there is an easier way to do a copy paste operation in dos under Windows, the quick edit mode!

You can activate it in the right click menu of the current command prompt window.

Just go to the properties menu and then check the option QuikEdit Mode 

When enable, to simply have to select your text with your mouse pointer and then hit Enter to copy it. Then you can paste it everywhere you want using CTRL+V or the menu of your application.

Simple but I forgot this option exists …
