In linux, if you select something like a line of text, it will automatically put that selection in the clipboard so you can then middle click and paste it. Is there a way to turn that on in windows vista or 7?

I just posted this here:

And then realised there was a forum :P

welcome to the HTG forums! one thing that i can think of of doing is to get a program that you can record keystrokes with to do tasks. the one i use is called Hotkeybind. basically, what i might suggest doing is to make a keystroke combo of like ctrl + middle button to copy, and maybe alt + middle button to paste, not sure. I just use ctrl + C and ctrl + V

hope this helped!
