Lesson 21. Running DOS Applications > Copying, Cutting, and Pasting Text

Copying, Cutting, and Pasting Text

You can copy, cut, and paste text into and out of any DOS program using the Windows Clipboard, just as you might with any Windows program. The procedure is a bit different, however:

  1. The DOS program must be running in a window, as shown in Figure 21.1. So if needed, press Alt+Enter to switch to windowed mode.

    Figure 21.1. You can copy and cut text from a DOS application.

  2. Click the Mark button on the toolbar.

  3. Highlight the text you want to copy or cut.

  4. To copy text, click the Copy button. The text is copied to the Clipboard. (To cut text, press the Delete key.)

  5. Switch to the other program. Click where you want the text placed, and then click the Paste button you'll find on most program's toolbars. If a Paste button doesn't exist, press Ctrl+V.
