Windows's cmd shortcut for copy is the same as taking a screenshot.

How retarded can people be to actually use that piece of crap?

    Why are you not using Windows Terminal?

    How many terminals does Windows have by now?

    ummm, what?
    os-native "shortcut" for taking screenshots is the PrintScreen key.
    whatever else it is that is listening for the cmd copy shortcut is some thirdparty program, thus not the fault of os and also very likely can be set to a different shortcut

    however, you might also be interested to know that finally, windows cmd also works with ctrl+c and ctrl+v

    still not sure what the hell you're talking about,though.

    @lbfalvy what's the difference, besides the window title? because i don't think there's any, at least on win10

    are you using win+c, instead of ctrl+c?
    Also, prntscreen, or ctrl+prntscreen is very very far from c on a keyboard.

    @Midnight-shcode you're right actually. Apparently any stupid app can add some stupid shortcut without any enforcment nor authorization.

    It's retarded

    @Midnight-shcode Among other things, Windows Terminal uses shift-ctrl-[x/c/v] for clipboard control, and it recognizes escape sequences correctly.

    @ostream yeah, global hooks have been a thing since at least Win95.

    no, it's not retarded, it's normal and cool and useful.

    creator of the app is retarded

    @Midnight-shcode you can add shortcut in any linux DE but the DE is handling it in a centralized way and you can see them all somewhere

    @ostream The difference then isn't that Windows allows apps to add any shortcut, it's that Windows doesn't allow users to configure them / standardizes on a level that leaves all decisions with the app such that centralized decision-making can't evolve organically. And this is pretty much normal for Windows-Linux comparisons due to open source's preference for modular architecture and organic standards.

    @ostream I just was thinking about this keyboard shortcuts problem today by a cup of coffee, and one more reason to sit on something else. 😄
