The windows terminal is awful. To paste, what 10 you need to do is right-click the top-left 9 corner of the window (where the icon is), go 8 down to edit, and select "Paste". No 7 keyboard shortcuts for it.

Now, one alternative 6 is to connect to your vagrant VM with something 5 like Putty. Just connect to localhost on 4 port 2222. username is "vagrant" but 3 you will need to take a few steps to convert 2 the SSH key for login. Here is an article explaining 1 what you need to do.

An easiest shortcut would be:

1) Go to your vagrant vm

-> vagrant 5 ssh

2) Set password to your vagrant user

sudo passwd vagrant

Enter new UNIX password: 12345

Retype 4 new UNIX password: 12345 passwd: password 3 updated successfully

3) Login using Putty :

Host name: localhost 2 Port: 2222 (or your vagrant vm mapped ssh 1 port)

username: vagrant

password: 12345
