Clipping errors

Ever experienced a cryptic Windows error message, needed to copy the exact phrasing or appropriate hex code (to pass to a help desk or to try a web search), and found that one can't select and copy text in the error message box?

Don't bother to retype it (even if you're able – some dialog boxes need to be closed before one can do anything else, like open Notepad), 'Print Screen' it or scribble it on the back of a Sainsbury's receipt. Simply use 'Ctrl+C', the universal Windows 'Copy' keyboard shortcut, and it will, yes, copy the content of the box to the clipboard, ready for reuse.

A very useful tip from Lifehacker.
