Copying trick with Hyper-V Error messages

  • Comments 3

Hyper-V uses the "new" Windows Vista / Windows Server 2008 style error messages - that look like this:

error

What you may not know is that if you click anywhere on this error message (other than on the buttons - obviously) and press Ctrl + C you can then paste this information into any text document and get:

[Window Title]

Neat, isn't it?

  • Hi Ben,

    Many dialogs support this (not only Vista / Server 2008 style dialogs)

    MessageBox.Show in the .NET framework also enables this for example.

    This has been possible ever since Windows 2000, nevertheless this is a little known but very useful feature!
