Enabling Copy and Paste[]

Sourced from here.

"\e[2~": paste-from-clipboard

Click and drag to select text and press Enter to copy to clipboard. Try pasting into another window.

If the test failed, you need to enable Quick Edit mode in the cmd.exe window properties.

In addition, you can bind the Insert key on your keyboard to the Paste function in the bash shell by adding


"\e[2~": paste-from-clipboard

to .inputrc in your cygwin home directory.
