Copying & pasting with DOS programmes

  jz 11:49 26 Mar 2005

I think it's possible to paste something into a DOS programme, and copy something out of it, but Ctrl C and Ctrl V don't work. What key combination is needed?

Thanks. Is there a way to paste into a DOS application rather than the commmand line prompt?

To copy data from a Windows application to a DOS application, follow these steps:

1. In the Windows application, open the document that contains the information you want to copy.

2. Select the information and choose Edit, Copy, or press Ctrl+C, or click the Copy button on the toolbar. The selection is copied to the Clipboard.

3. Open the DOS application. The DOS application should be in a window, not full-screen.

4. Place the cursor in the location where you want to insert the contents of the Clipboard.

5. Open the Control menu and choose Edit, Paste, or click the Paste button on the toolbar. The contents of the Clipboard is inserted into the DOS document.

In XP using the CMD box,highlight the windows text you want,right click select copy/right click on the CMD window and select paste.

To copy the contents of a CMD box,right click on window select all/return copies everything highlighted to the clipboard which you can paste to wherever.
