Copying text from Command Prompt

Most of us never use command prompt in windows. But some people like me have some fascination on typing command and executing them in a plain old fashion. This tip will be useful  for those who are like me. Most of the time we wanted to copy output from the command prompt and use for some purpose. Linux users have the comfort of piping output of their commands in to some text file or into another command. For windows users they can only copy and paste from the output by following these steps.

1.Right click inside the  command prompt and select the “Mark” option.


2.Select the area ypu want select in the prompt.


3.Don’t use right click to copy use keyboard shortcut “ctrl+c” for copying.
