Linux – Windows 10 build 14316: Ctrl + v doesn’t work on Bash on Ubuntu on Windows

bashcopy/pastewindows 10windows-insiderwindows-subsystem-for-linux

On the new Windows 10 insider build 14316, I haven't been able to use Ctrl + V (shortcut for paste) on the new Bash on Ubunbu on Windows app. Has anybody else had this issue? Any solutions?

I have edited the app's properties to enable control shortcuts and insert. Also, I have tried Ctrl + Shift + V and Shift + Insert and neither work.

Why don't you guys just Right Click? here is how to enable copy and paste:

  1. Go to the top of the bash window, right click, go to properties
  2. Check the box that says Quick edit Mode, and you are set!
