    COMMAND LINE TEXT SELECTION KEYS

    These combinations interoperate with the mouse so you can start selecting with the mouse and continue with one of these commands, or vice versa.

    Selection Key Combination

    Description

    SHIFT + LEFT ARROW

    Moves the cursor to the left one character, extending the selection.

    SHIFT + RIGHT ARROW

    Moves the cursor to the right one character, extending the selection.

    SHIFT + UP ARROW

    Selects text up line by line starting from the location of the insertion point.

    SHIFT + DOWN ARROW

    Extends text selection down one line, starting at the location of the insertion point.

    SHIFT + END

    If cursor is in current line being edited

    * First time extends selection to the last character in the input line.

    * Second consecutive press extends selection to the right margin.

    Else

    Selects text from the insertion point to the right margin.

    SHIFT + HOME

    If cursor is in current line being edited

    * First time extends selection to the character immediately after the command prompt.

    * Second consecutive press extends selection to the left margin.

    Else

    Extends selection to the left margin.

    SHIFT + PAGE DOWN

    Extends selection down one screen.

    SHIFT + PAGE UP

    Extends selection up one screen.

    CTRL + SHIFT + RIGHT ARROW

    Extends the selection one word to the right.

    CTRL + SHIFT + LEFT ARROW

    Extends the selection one word to the left.

    CTRL + SHIFT + HOME

    Extend selection to the beginning of the screen buffer.

    CTRL + SHIFT + END

    Extend selection to the end of the screen buffer.

    CTRL + A

    If cursor is in current line being edited (from first typed char to last type char) and line is not empty and any selection cursor is also within the line being edited

    Selects all text after the prompt. (phase 1)

    Else

    Selects the entire buffer. (phase 2)

    EXTRA FUN WITH CTRL + A

    CTRL + A behavior is interesting. Regardless of the state of mark mode and quick edit mode, one of two things should happen. Either the entire buffer is selected, or (only in a single case) '2-Phase select' starts. 2-Phase select is the process where the first CTRL-A selects the characters to the right of the edit line prompt, and the second press selects the entire buffer.

    EDITING KEYS

    As I mentioned above you can copy and paste text with the keyboard. When copying text, you might worry that CTRL + C has always been the BREAK command. This is a nice touch, it will still send the break signal to the running application when no text is selected. The first CTRL-C copies the text and clears the selection, and the second one signals the break. Nice attention to detail, IMHO.

    Editing Key Combination

    Description

    CTRL + V

    Paste text into the command line.

    SHIFT + INS

    Paste text into the command line.

    CTRL + C

    Copy selected text to the clipboard.

    CTRL + INS

    Copy selected text to the clipboard.

    MARK MODE KEYS

    These keys function in mark mode. You can enter this mode by right-clicking anywhere in the console title bar and choosing Edit->Mark from the context menu as before, or via the new shortcut combination, CTRL-M. In the original console, mark mode resulted in block mode text selection. While in mark mode, you can hold down the ALT key at the start of a text selection command to use block mode in the new console. The selection key combinations above are all available in mark mode. CTRL + SHIFT + ARROW operations select by character and not by word while in mark mode.

    Mark Mode Key Combination

    Description

    CTRL + M

    Enter "Mark Mode" to move cursor within window.

    ALT

    In conjunction with one of the selection key combinations, begins selection in block mode.

    ARROW KEYS

    Move cursor in the direction specified.

    PAGE KEYS

    Move cursor by one page in the direction specified.

    CTRL + HOME

    Move cursor to beginning of buffer.

    CTRL + END

    Move cursor to end of buffer.

    HISTORY NAVIGATION KEYS

    Navigation Key Combination

    Description

    CTRL + UP ARROW

    Moves up one line in the output history.

    CTRL + DOWN ARROW

    Moves down one line in the output history.

    CTRL + PAGE UP

    Moves up one page in the output history.

    CTRL + PAGE DOWN

    Moves down one page in the output history.

    OTHER KEYS

    Other Key Combination

    Description

    CTRL + F

    Opens "Find" in console dialog.

    ALT + F4

    Close the console window, of course!
