In Windows, certain windows don't have the normal copy/paste clipboard functionality. This includes the Debug Console for the staff client, and any DOS/Command prompt windows, such as the one we tell you to use when pinging the server.

To copy content from these windows (for say, pasting into a helpdesk ticket), follow these steps:

  • Right-click on the title bar for the window.
  • You should see a context menu containing such options as Move, Size, Edit, Properties, etc. Choose Edit
  • You should see a submenu containing such options as Mark, Paste, and Select All. Choose Select All
  • After choosing Select All, press the Enter key
  • Then window content should now be in your clipboard where you can paste it into another application. This is better than screenshots.
