I think you mean:

execfile('test.py')

that should work.  if you have iPython, which is a great shell for  
running python code, you can do:

run test.py

as far as copy/paste, I think in Windows Python runs in a DOS prompt,  
so you should be able to right-click and choose Edit/Paste.  Not too  
convenient, but I think it works.
