Copy and Paste from virtual machine to desktop



0
Hi I am unable to copy and paste from virtual machine to desktop. I checked edit->preferences and did not find any option to enable copy & paste. I am using windows 8. Searched on google and it says the copy paste functionality is not supported in windows 8. Does any one know alternative options to copy and paste from virtual machine to desktop and vice-versa. Any input is highly appreciated. Thank you!

not sure if it works in windows8, try edit settings of the VM > Options tab > Guest Isolation > Enable the Copy and paste option

HI Sai

I don't think you can directly copy paste between them. You will have to use Winscp or filezilla to move the files around.

No Shabana, I usually drag and drop in my machine (Windows7). But yes if that doesnt work you always have winscp.

Rakesh/Shabana - Thank you !

Shabhana- Yes I used winscp to upload files from local to server. Actually I want to copy commands from text file and paste in vm from desktop.

for example : hadoop fs -mkdir /user/cloudera/class3/wc-input1

ok, copy paste in terminal doesnt support Ctrl+c. Try Shift+Insert.

Hi Rakesh - Tried Shift+Insert and it did not work. I also tried right click paste and same result.

Steps followed:
step 1 : Windows -> notepad text file - copied command "hadoop fs -mkdir /user/cloudera/class3/wc-input1" using Ctrl + C

Step 2: VM - cloudera@cloudera-vm:/ Shift + Insert or right click paste
