Commandline Quick Edit Mode

Windows NT supports Quick edit mode allows you to use the mouse to select text,
cut, copy and paste in command shell. This mode is not enabled by default, to
enable, cut and paste the following code into quickedit.reg file and run it.

REGEDIT4

HERE

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console]
“QuickEdit”=”1”

BLANK LINE GOES HERE


If you want to disable QuickEdit mode after applying
this hack, just change “1” to “0”. See .REG files
for background information.

This Windows NT registry hack will set Quick edit mode
globally. To enable for the current command box, Right click on the title
bar, select properties, select the options tab and check the “QuickEdit Mode”
box.

To copy text into the clipboard, select text with the left mouse button and
press Ctrl-C

To paste text into the command box, right click the mouse. If at the
commandline, the command process will try to execute the text. I use it to paste
into vi.
