Pasting Into a Command Window

I amazed a client recently who was looking over my shoulder when I copied a file path from the address in Windows Explorer.

Actually, it wasn't copying the path that impressed him -- it was when I pasted that text into a command window. I clicked in the command window, clicked on the icon at the right-hand end of the command window's title bar and, from the dropdown menu, selected Edit | Paste.

As the file path appeared in the window, he said "Now, that's cool."

This is how you get a reputation as wizard, kids. (I didn't say it was hard to do.)
