# How to copy text from window text editor to nano/vi in a Putty window

nanoputtysshvi

I was following some guide to create key-pair for my remote linux system, one of the steps being copy the public key generated and saved on my local computer to the authorized-keys file on remote computer.
I tried ctrl + c and then ctrl + v to nano/vi editor in the "putty" window, but it doesn't work(nothing appears in the editor). Do I really have to manually type in the keys or there is some other way to copy and paste it?
