One of the more annoying things of the windows command line is the lack of Shift+Ins to paste the clipboard.

A bit of googling made me discover a very useful software called AutoHotkey .

While I’m just beginning to use it it proved to be the perfect tool for the job.

This simple script allows use Shift+Ins to paste the clipboard content inside the Windows console:

#IfWinActive ahk_class ConsoleWindowClass
RShift & Ins::
SendInput {Raw}%clipboard%

I’m sure AutoHotkey will be even more valuable as I learn how to use the advanced functions.

Strongly recommended.
