After installing Visual Studio 2015 on my fresh Windows 10, I’ve figured out that ctrl+c \ ctrl+v not working anymore in command prompt (cmd.exe)

For some reason, VS has put my cmd.exe in the legacy mode. To fix that:

  • Open cmd.exe
  • Right click on a windows header
  • Go to Properties 
  • Option tab
  • Deselect Use legacy console
  • Close cmd.exe
