Conemu uses CTRL+V as the short cut to “paste first line of clipboad.” I want this functionality when I’m interacting with the command-line, but when I’m in Vim I’d like Vim to handle it.

  • @Maximus any update on this? I don't care about using Ctrl-V outside of Vim. – blah238 Oct 17 '15 at 1:00
  • Never mind, I added an answer that works for me. – blah238 Oct 17 '15 at 1:04

You can use Ctrl + Shift + V instead.

    I suppose that this is not so terrible. – Mateen Ulhaq Mar 23 '18 at 23:18

    A little terrible. Nice to know, though. – Sigfried May 8 '19 at 14:27

For future Googlers, unbinding Ctrl + V in Settings->Keys & Macro allows Vim to handle it. You can use right-click to paste instead.

    right-click is not ctrl+v – Manachi Sep 13 '17 at 0:39

This is basically just a synthesis of the two other answers, but the workaround I ended up using was to go into Settings->Keys & Macro and change the binding for CTRL+V to CTRL+SHIFT+V.
