Command Prompt Hack – How to Enable Control+V!

I’ve always grown tired of the fact that Windows command prompt does not allow you to use any shortcuts like Control+C and Control+V for copying and pasting. I never understood why that wasn’t possible but here’s how to enable Control+V at the least for your next command prompt adventures.

#IfWinActive ahk_class ConsoleWindowClass
SendInput {Raw}%clipboard%

Of course, don’t forget you need to download AutoHotKey first!
