Command Prompt QuickEdit Mode Is Disabled by Default in Windows XP

·

With QuickEdit mode, you can copy text between a command window and Windows-based programs, and you can also paste text into a command window by using a right-click operation. In Microsoft Windows 2000, QuickEdit and Insert mode are both enabled by default. In Windows XP, because these features are disabled by default, there is improved program compatibility with older MS-DOS-based programs that have included mouse support.

To enable QuickEdit mode in Windows XP:

1.

Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.

2.

Click the icon in the upper-left corner of the Command Prompt window, and then click Properties.

3.

On the Options tab, click to select the QuickEdit Mode and Insert Mode check boxes.

4.

Click OK.

5.

Click Save properties for future windows with same title, and then click OK.
