Application

Right after the installation, Command Line Clipboard will begin accepting Clipboard shortcuts. Note that the software can work only with console windows. (These windows include command line, or command prompt windows, also PowerShell windows, as well as administrative command prompt, or any other DOS-Shell windows native to the operating system, or based on it.)

By default the following Clipboard shortcuts will be available:

Note that the console window must be processing input to receive pasted text. The maximum number of text characters that can be pasted into a console window can be controlled via Command Line Clipboard software settings.

You can define in settings the way Command Line Clipboard software treats pasting of special characters, such as: new-lines and tabs.

Selection of text using keyboard shortcuts provided by the Command Line Clipboard software is governed by the capabilities of the implementation of console windows in the operating system and in most cases is limited to a simple rectangular region. For keyboard shortcut text selection to succeed a console window must be clearly visible on the screen and be unobscured by other top-most windows.
