How to Enable and Disable QuickEdit Mode in Windows 2000

Windows 2000 is a line of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on business desktops, notebook computers, and servers. In QuickEdit mode, we can copy text between a command window and Windows-based programs. We can also paste text into a command window by using a right-click operation. In Microsoft Windows 2000, QuickEdit and Insert mode are both enabled by default and by enabling "QuickEdit" mode, we can use a mouse to copy and paste MS-DOS text.
We can disable and enable "QuickEdit Mode" in Windows 2000 by the following steps :--
1. Click on "Start" and point to Programs, point to Accessories and then click on "Command Prompt".
2. Right-click on the title bar, and then click Properties.
3. Click on the "Options" tab and then perform either of the following steps:--
# Click to clear the QuickEdit mode check box to disable QuickEdit mode, and then click on "OK" tab.
# Click to select the QuickEdit mode check box to enable QuickEdit mode, and then click on "OK" tab.
4. In the Apply Properties To Shortcut dialog box, perform either of the following steps:
# Click on "Apply" properties to current window only to use QuickEdit mode in the current window.
# Click on "Modify" shortcut that started this window to apply QuickEdit mode every time you start the MS-DOS-based program.
5. Click on "OK" tab.

We should make sure that we cannot paste text to either a command prompt window or an MS-DOS-based program if either the command prompt or the program is running in full-screen mode.
