Open-source Windows Terminal does the splits: There ain't no party like a multi-pane party

alt+space and then 'copy' after highlighting the text in the regular windows console. I hope they don't make it harder in any way. NOT having hot keys would be irritating.

But with Cygwin terminal you need to use ctrl-insert to copy, shift-insert to paste [I think that's right]. I remember it's different, and somewhat necessarily so, because of the Linux-like use of keystrokes in Cygwin.

What would be REALLY nice is if the console allowed ctrl+insert and shift+insert as well, similar to what you get in Cygwin's console. But I think that only people who LIVE IN THE COMMAND SHELL would even consider such things...
