Another green screen copy/paste

This tip shows you an easy way to created another pop-up window for the green screen.

Being used to copy/paste with a right click on my mouse on the PC side, I was forever frustrated to have to highlight the text, then move the mouse to the copy or paste toolbar. So I created another pop-up window for the green screen. Under ASSIST chose Popup Keyboard Setup. Push the Customize button. If you use the HELP button, it will show you how to create your own keypad. On mine, I have the following: Edit Copy; Edit Cut; Edit Pst; Edit Undo; Host Prn; & local copy I can select the test, right click & move the mouse to one of my buttons & copy paste just like in other PC programs. You can also have this pop up be your main popup.
