Copy from guest Ubuntu terminal in virual machine to Microsoft Word on host windows

but, whilst I've set the Copy / Paste settings, and got keyboard access to the Ubuntu command line, if I drag my mouse on the command line I can't select anything.

Is there a way to select the text?

  • Is that a desktop or server version of the Ubuntu? If it's a server then I would recommend you to use putty and then you can copy paste text from that VM like it's running a new window on your windows – lewis4u Oct 5 '16 at 21:59
