New copy and paste feature in Command Prompt of Windows 10 [Tip]

Have you ever been disturbed by not being able to copy a long command to the Command Prompt with a simple “Ctrl + v” command  in Windows 8, 7, and all the previous versions of Windows? Especially when you want to navigate to a specific folder, you have to type a lengthy direction, and sometimes you might have a typo. You can tell that Microsoft had improved the Command Prompt in Windows 8 by letting users copy commands with a simple right click. But still, you cannot copy commands inside the Command Prompt, and it is painstaking that you can only press the up arrow to go though the previous commands. Now Windows 10 seems to have come up with a solution to all these issues. Let’s go have a look at the new Command Prompt of Windows 10!


With the following instructions you will be able to see a clear difference between Windows 8 and Windows 10.
