Microsoft Windows Tip of the Day: Copy a Dialog Box Text

I find it very helpful to have a textual copy of error reports found in dialogs such as the one below:



If you didn’t already know it is actually possible to get the text of a dialog in Microsoft Windows, in any version that I have ever used, up to and including Windows Server 2012.

Just press Ctrl+C and all of the text, buttons included, will be copied to the clipboard.

Open your favorite text editor and just paste the text into a document like you would any other.

I hope that saves you some time.
