Copy text from DOS window

Some times while working in DOS, you need to copy some text to other applications like MS Word. But you cannot directly copy your text by pressing Ctrl+C and paste it by Ctrl+V. The solution is as follows:

"Start > Programs > Command Prompt > DOS" 
Run the character mode program that you want to import data from, and go to the screen with the data you want to capture.
Right click the title bar of the DOS box

Select "Edit | Mark"

 Click and drag the mouse until you select the data area that you want to copy. Press ENTER when you've finished selecting.

 Switch to the Windows program that you want to import the just copied data to, and select its paste function.
