Command Prompt users will be pleased to know that Windows 10 has introduced some useful keyboard shortcuts regarding copying and pasting. Specifically, you can now use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V in the Command Prompt, which is something you definitely cannot do in previous versions of Windows.
Enable the new shortcuts
In the final version of Windows 10, Command Prompt shortcuts are turned on by default (in earlier builds they were turned off).
If you're not sure if the shortcuts are turned on, you can check by opening the Command Prompt (Start > All apps > Windows System > Command Prompt) and right-clicking the title bar of the Command Prompt's window.
Click Properties and a new window will open. Under the Options tab, you'll see a section called Edit Options. Make sure the check box next to Enable Ctrl key shortcuts is checked, and click OK to apply the changes.
Here's what you can do via keyboard shortcut in the Command Prompt:
Copy selected text to the clipboard: Ctrl + C or Ctrl + Insert
Paste copied text: Ctrl + V or Shift + Insert
Select all text in the current line (if there's no text in the current line, all text in the Command Prompt will be selected): Ctrl + A
Move screen one line up/down (similar to scrolling): Ctrl + Up/Down
Move screen one page up/down: Ctrl + Page Up/Page Down
Open Find window for searching through the Command Prompt: Ctrl + F
