If you right-click on a DOS box without anything selected, then it 
pastes.  (Asssuming quickedit mode)

For example, you run a command that displays a string, and you want to 
use that string as your next command:

left-drag over the desired text.
Right click to copy to clipboard
Right click again to paste into current cursor position
