:grinning: Easy! I didn’t sow that button! :slight_smile: OK! I have solve the first part of exercise! Now the second part: how to automaticly paste the value in notepad? (Ctrl + V)

:)) work with fingers and without fingers :)) Tks a lot!

I’ve tried many buttons but still can’t paste by [Ctrl + V], could anybody help, please?

Hey! You just need to enter “[d(ctrl)]v[u(ctrl)]” (without quotes) in your Type Into activity.


“[d(ctrl)]v[u(ctrl)]” (without quotes) in your Type Into activity and it works!


Thank U so much!!!

No problem, buddy!

That’s one way, but there’s actually an action dedicated for keyboard shortcuts that should be used in this case.


Thank you, Bianca! This came in even handier!

Keyboard shortcuts are much more accessible.

[d (ctrl)] v [u (ctrl)] do not know what it is and how it works (it is something like regular expression) although it seems to work!

Keyboard shortcuts are much more intuitive!

I used the Copy to clipboard by using the click function and clicked on the little double square copy to clipboard icon.

Then outside of the user browser function, I used the “use application” function to select note pad (you must have notepad already open to do this).

Then I used “keyboard shortcuts” and clicked record, i then typed “control v” which is to paste.


You can use Send Hotkey even more easy.

Yes, I solved it. Password Generator exercise - I used Get Text->Write Text File activities in solving it. Let me know if that worked for you.

Thanks for your awesome response @Bianca.Dragu :slight_smile:

@Codex @Simon_G you can also use the “Get From Clipboard” activity to fetch the text stored in clipboard and “Set To Clipboard” activity to set/store text in clipboard.

Send Hotkey was easy solution for this.

Hi Rahul, that is a great solution that applies to automation projects in Studio. In StudioX, the practice can be solved with a Keyboard Shortcut action or some Click actions.

I was able to solve using copy to clipboard using keyboard shortcut - Ctrl+v but could not right click and select paste.

After clicking f2 and waited for 5 second, I clicked on paste, the paste option was not recorded , instead the whole notepad text window was selected.
