I am using GNU Emacs (latest version) on Windows XP. How do I paste content from the Windows clipboard into Emacs?

Just a tip: "latest version" does not say much in say six months time. Furthermore it is unclear since there might be stable/unstable/beta/snapshot/etc. versions available - which is the latest? Always specify which version you mean. It will help you get better answers to your questions in the future. – Daniel Andersson Apr 17 '12 at 7:25

Using mouse middle button works for me.
