    Simple and quick select and middle mouse click to paste


    Please, please include a Linux-like function for it's superior alternative to copy and paste. This is probably one of the top reasons why I could never revert to Windows.

    Example: Selecting any text always stores the selection into a second copy buffer. When pressing the middle mouse button/wheel the buffered text is pasted at the mouse position.


    This while not interfering with other middle/wheel click functions such as closing browser tabs and such. Also not re-using or affecting the usual Ctrl-C / Ctrl-V since that is a completely different use case.

    Hence it can never be replaced by any mouse driver overlay or any existing scripting solution - they all break other workflows.

    :)

    Selection into clipboard and middle mouse button to paste.

    I really miss this functionality from Linux operating systems. When a text is selected, it is automatically copied into the clipboard and when the middle mouse button is clicked (or the mouse wheel), this content is pasted a the cursor position. It would
    be a really nice feature that boosts productivity. Is there any way enabling this on W10 as well?

    Hi Soerendip

    If the driver and software that came with your mouse does not support programming the functionality of that middle click or pressing the scroll wheel, then Windows does not have that functionality built in, you would need to use a 3rd party utility like the
    free X-Mouse Button Control

    Quick Access bar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty.

    Remove items from Quick access.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps.

    • Right click on the file or folder.
    • Select the option “unpin from the quick access”


    To pin items to an item already on the quick access bar.

    Follow the below steps.

    I would suggest you to create folder in the desktop screen & place all the files or folder which need to pin to the quick access.

    • Open the quick access.
    • Select the Desktop option.
    • Right click on the folder & select the option “pin to quick access”


    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
