Change Window's CMD to behave more like PuTTY

Note: Better yet, use the Terminal app in Windows 10 and 11

Having used both the Windows command line and then used PuTTY to control Linux machines, I miss the simple copy and paste functions PuTTY offers however theseĀ are already built into CMD!

Simply open a command prompt, click the C:\_ icon in the top-right and select Properitesā€¦ In the Options Tab, in the Edit Options group, tick the Quick Edit Mode and Insert Mode check boxes.

There you have it, now selections in the command prompt will automatically be copied to the clipboard and right-clicks will perform the paste operation a la PuTTY.
