# Linux – way to copy text in htop

htoplinuxputtyssh

Normally in putty you can just select text to copy it, but I can't seem to select text with my mouse in htop.

Of course there's no right click menu to copy, ctrl+c doesn't work, and I didn't see any copy command in the help menu.

Is it possible to copy text in htop?

In my experience, holding Shift lets you select text in programs that have mouse support (of which htop is one, I assume).
