Copy and Paste

X-Win32 now has integrated dynamic copying and pasting. X-Win32 now can copy and paste in the exact same way that the copy/paste functionality works on the native operating systems respectively. Unix and Windows have different input commands for copying and pasting text.

To Copy from Windows to Unix

  1. Highlight Text on Windows file
  2. Press Control+C
  3. Click on Unix application
  4. Middle mouse click to paste (you can also press Shift+Insert to paste on Unix)

Note: highlighting text (even blank lines) on unix/linux systems automatically overwrites the current clipboard selection. Ensure that you haven’t copied a blank line of text when activating the X-Win32 window. Otherwise your Windows selection will be lost
