Pasting into a SSH session from Windows via Putty

It is no big secret that I am a “Windows Guy”. But I often find myself connecting to remote Linux boxes and having to copy/paste chunks of code. I learned that you can copy the text as you normally would and to paste it into a console window in Putty just right click – that’s it! Simply right clicking will paste your clipboard contents.

This saves huge amounts of time when following instructions. Do you have any Putty tips? We would love to hear them in the comments.
