How to copy the commands typed in the command prompt onto a text editor or Word?

As Ctrl + C doesn't work in the command prompt, how else can one achieve that?

Would appreciate any help.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Just launch the command prompt like you usually launch it and do the work you like to do.

  1. Now Right click anywhere in command line window and select the Mark option.

  2. Now use Shift+Arrow key to select the desired text.

    Note: When you active the Mark, the cursor will probably go to the top of the window. Now you can move it using the arrow keys.

  3. After selecting the desired text, hit the Enter key to copy it to clipboard and paste it on notepad.
