Copy & Paste In Command Prompt In Windows 10

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10

One cool new feature of Windows 10 – is that you’ll now have the ability to copy and paste inside the command prompt using Ctrl C and Ctrl V.  If you’ve ever had to copy a long instruction where you weren’t sure if there needed to be a space in there or not, you’ll really appreciate this.

Here’s how to activate it.  Open Command prompt and then right-click the bar. Select Properties. In the window that opens  uncheck Use legacy console. Then under Edit Options, enable Insert Mode and Enable Ctrl key shortcuts.

    You do not indicate where to open the command prompt.

      Hey Leslie, The short answer is ‘Run: cmd.exe from the Windows Start Menu’ or if you need more info; Google ‘Windows 10 command prompt’, enough said.

    Hey Cynthia, Another great addition for the ‘Window’s 10 Guide’.

    This would be more helpful if “command prompt” were explained, along with how to open it.

  4. Joe says:

    Opened comm. prompt, but could not find a bar to right click that would show “properties” ?
