Non-rectangle select in Windows command line – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/16

Just discovered this has been possible since Windows 10 by holding the shift key while dragging with the mouse. After like 20 years of waiting, why did nobody warn me (:

Is there any way I can disable the stupid rectangle selection mode thing in the Windows command line? I want to select line by line like normal. Currently it’s a giant pain when I need to copy things

So this is a thing from the past: [WayBack] Non-rectangle select in Windows command line – Super User

And this was already possible (but then you had to drag the full width): [WayBack] windows – Select text across lines in cmd.exe? – Super User
