This feature has been working since windows 2k or early versions of XP, and still many people do not know about it.

If you have a Message Box showing, and you want to copy its contents, you can just Ctrl-C when the window is focused - you will hear a beep and the contents of the Message Box (including buttons and caption) will be loaded into your clipboard.

Very useful when having to copy a long error message somewhere or when a message box used for debugging displays too much information.

Note though, that apps that use non-standard message boxes will probably not have that feature enabled.

Example:

---------------------------
MSN Messenger
---------------------------
You are now signing out from MSN Messenger. All conversation windows will be closed.
---------------------------
OK   Cancel
