It always amazed me that Microsoft didn't have keyboard shortcuts for the Clipboard operations in command line windows up until Windows 10! This software fixes that. It is a small extension that enables your usual Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V and Shift+Arrow Keys shortcuts to copy, paste and select text in console or command prompt windows, respectively.

Special features:

  • Works for all console windows, including command line, PowerShell, admin command prompt, and others.
  • It is automatically installed for all Windows user accounts.
  • It automatically implements your usual Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Shift+Arrow Keys shortcuts right after installation.* No initial setup is necessary.
  • Each keyboard shortcut is customizable and can be configured for other keyboard combinations. Software supports left and right Shift, Ctrl and Alt keys. Additional settings are available.
  • Shortcuts are installed only for console windows. The software does not affect any other windows.
  • The software doesn't install any popups or unnecessary notification tray icons that can interfere with your work.
  • In our usual style we've developed this software to be very fast and take up as little system resources as possible.
  • Even though Windows 10 supports Clipboard keyboard shortcuts for console windows, you can still use this software to add additional keyboard sequences of your choosing.
* - feature is implemented differently in Windows 10.
