When can the Windows command line tool directly copy/paste using Command/Ctrl + C/V?

Li Haoqiang 1 Reputation point

The Windows command line can also be copied/pasted directly using Command / Ctrl + C / V. At present, some terminal tools such as PowerShell Core are not very good for Ctrl + C / V support, but in some scenarios it is very tasteless. Windows Terminal is a good start, I hope to improve this experience, Windows10 has made us like Windows enough.

    For such feedback please use the Windows 10 feedback hub, it's done to left request like that one.

    You can see how there; Send feedback to Microsoft with the Feedback Hub app

    You can search all feedback items too, as maybe you can upvote your feedback if someone else already posted it for consideration.

    Are you saying that you want better support in cmd.exe?

    And what scenarios are "tasteless" (by which I assume you mean not working at you'd expect) in your mind?

    No, the only way to paste content in CMD console is right click on the title bar. but you should try the Windows Terminal

    In Linux you can paste with CTRL+SHIFT+V, on windows 10 CTRL+V is supported as well as right clicking for pasting, on older version of windows you can try the above method!
