Does anyone know how to select a portion of text within a windows command prompt without using a mouse? e.g. shift + left/right arrow. I have tried lots of different command prompts (cmd, powershell, cygwin, mintty) and have yet to find a shell which can do this without using a mouse. I know it's possible as I do it all the time in terminal.app on mac os x.
As Ignacio said however you need to ensure "QuickEdit Mode" is enabled from the CMD properties.
