Hello everyone. I just have a simple question with command prompt in Windows 7. Is there any command that copies the text from a file onto the clipboard so I can paste it somewhere? All I want to do is start the batch file and press Control-V. Solutions?

Thank you for replying but that is not what I am looking for. I don't want to put the output into a text document. I want the batch file to literally highlight all of the text in a text document, right click, and then click on Copy.

The contents of a file can be displayed using the 'type' command. You can then redirect output to the clipboard with a pipe, e.g. c:\type example.txt | clip

you cant use control and V. What I do is a right click in the command prompt and click paste. Sounds stupid, but it has worked for me.

AffineMesh, your method worked perfectly. Thank you all so much for the help!
