Many network engineers have enough with the “Ctr + C” combo in cisco command prompt.
You have to go back to the configuration level after you issue a command like “do sh xxxx” and copy something.
In MacOS, the Command + C works just fine!
Today, I will share some little trick for Engineers who works in windows environment on daily basis.
Step 1. Download the autohotkey from https://www.autohotkey.com/
Step 2. Run it , right click and click “edit this script”
Step 3, in the new notepad editor, paste below script to give Alt+s the ability to copy the selected text. and save it:
!s:: ;Alt+s to copy Clip0 = %ClipBoardAll% ClipBoard = StringRight x,A_ThisHotKey,1 ; C or X Send ^%x% ; For best compatibility: SendPlay ClipWait 2 ; Wait for text, up to 2s If ErrorLevel ClipBoard = %Clip0% ; Restore original ClipBoard Else ClipBoard = %ClipBoard% ; Convert to text VarSetCapacity(Clip0, 0) return
Step 4. right click Autohotkey and click “reload this script”
