Windows 7 command prompt shortcuts

How can I make my command prompt so that I can use a mouse to mark text without having to right click on the top of the window and go to edit?

It would also be nice to use ctrl c and ctrl v to copy and paste respectively.

when you open the command prompt on top of its bar click on Properties and in Option tab you would see "Edit Options". In there if you check "QuickEdit Mode" then it would give you the ability to copy the text when you select it and by right clicking on the command prompt you would be able to paste what has been copied.

I hope that would help.

That works!

That is going to help me out.

No ctrl c and ctrl v or any other keyboard shortcuts?

No, there aren't. SSharma gave you the only way to copy and paste from/to cmd.
