[Windows Tip] How to mark, copy, paste in Windows cmd

0 Nika Mchedlidze · October 29, 2014
I noticed a lot of people type links and directories manually, I also noticed that Bucky did it in Git tutorial on last tutorial :D. Anyways, just hover over front bar on command prompt (Bash, however you call it) and right click, Wow! now you can go to "edit" tab, and - you have mark, copy, paste, select all, scroll and find! I found this out when I was fiddling around with command prompts few months ago (Yeah its nothing big and surprising, but yeah, might help really few people).

Good luck!

Correct me if I am wrong somewhere (worked on Win7).

Bash is a shell environment on specific Linux distributions. There is not bash for windows.

While copy and paste is useful for url's and such, i can quite often type a dir faster than it is to copy and paste it into the terminal. Guess it's just about personal preference and experience.
