aren't. Hello and welcome to command line basics. This module will cover how to copy and paste in Windows Command line. I'm Christopher Hyler and this begin
00:10
so learning objectives for this module, we're gonna learn how to select a text on the command line, how to copy the selection from the command line and had a paste into the command line for when you're writing commands.
00:24
It's a pre assessment. The control C and the control V keys work to copy and paste in the command line. True or false,
00:34
the answer is false. The control Seiki interrupts a command, as we've learned in previous previous videos. For this course, you will learn that the control the key does work in the Windows Command to paste into it.
00:50
Um, so, yeah, this kid started.
00:53
All right. So in order to copy, we have to make a selection first. And, ah, there's a few different ways to do this. You can either right click and choose Mark, or you can click in the top left the same way that we were able to change the properties for the command window.
01:10
And so, as you can see in the screen shot and click the top left. It pulls up the prompt window goingto edit and mark, and this will allow you to drag across and choose something thio to copy.
01:23
In order to make your selection. Just press enter.
01:26
Just let me give you a quick demonstration of that
01:29
so I'm going to do D I r which change directory into my desktop.
01:37
You are again change directory to resource is
01:42
And let's say I want to copy something out of these words that t X T file is going to use that type command
01:49
words.
01:51
And let's say this one sentence this third sentence here, I really want to see you, right Click
01:57
copy.
01:59
And I let all of this press enter.
02:02
And it is now on my clipboard so I can use the control V to paste directly into here.
02:09
Or I can go to any other type of text editor and really worked my way through.
02:16
Um,
02:17
also, we can go up to this edit mark
02:22
and paste select oh,
02:24
all sorts of different functions we could
02:29
All right,
02:30
so to copy, we already kind of went through this. We have our selection made, and then we can just press the enter key and it will automatically copy it.
02:39
It will be held in the clipboard like you would for Microsoft Word or a you know, a text editor.
02:47
Ah, and we could be used to paste and paste plenty of times.
02:53
And like I was showing you the paste, We can just do control V to paste right into it. And we can use this to, you know, paste our, um our text that we got from running commands into a text file so we can save it for later. Or,
03:09
you know, we can take a specific command that we found on the Internet.
03:14
We're a different command that we saved. Copy that and then paste it directly into the command prompt so that we can use it for later times as well.
03:23
Height, supposed assessment,
03:25
copying and pasting information is effective in the command line. True or false,
03:32
the answer is true. Copying and pasting is something that you will do a lot in the command line. So you need to be able to be very comfortable with it in order Thio become effective at it. And like I was saying, you will do a lot of research trying to figure out how to utilize specific commands.
03:51
So being of the copy and paste things from Google from the Internet from your notes is going to be very helpful for you.
04:00
All right, So in this video, we learned how to select a text on the command line, had a copy selection from the command and how to paste into the command line. And I hope to see you in the next video.
