vistaWindows Command Prompt is a nice utility which lets you use the core of all of the Windows editions, namely the DOS (disk operating system). This operating system, despite quite old, lets you perform thanks to its commands a big variety of tasks including retrieving a lot of infos about your system. But how to use its infos if apparently it is impossible to copy them even on the Notepad? Here is a useful trick to copy whatever you wish from the Command prompt.

  1. First of all, gain access to the Windows Command Prompt. Click on Start, on the Search Bar type Command Prompt and hit Enter. You should now be able to see the famous black window.
  2. Right-click on the title bar and then select Properties.
  3. On the option tab, under Edit Option, click on Quick Edit Mode.
  4. Now, go back to the Command Prompt black window, left-click and underline anything you want on it.
  5. Press (CTRL+C) to copy the content you just selected.
  6. Open the Notepad and paste (CTRL+V) the content on it.
  7. Done!
