This package uses AutoHotkey to remap the dreadful Windows-console-paste key combination, ALT + Space, E, P, to the more commonly used "paste" shortcut, CTRL + V. It's known to work in the "command prompt" (cmd.exe), PowerShell, Console2, and Git Bash (mingw).

To install Windows Command Paste, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install wincommandpaste

To upgrade Windows Command Paste, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

      .SYNOPSIS
    
      Install-Shortcut creates a new shortcut to a file or program.
    
      .DESCRIPTION
    
      Install-Shortcut wraps the COM Object, Wscript.Shell, and its arguments to create
      a shortcut to a file or program. It requires some very specific input, please
      review the notes on each parameter.
    
      .PARAMETER Link
    
      The shortcut to create.
    
      The underlying COM Object requires an absolute path. This function will
      attempt to properly expand that path, especially if you provide a
      SpecialFolder as a root directory.
    
      The underlying COM Object also requires that the link's path/name end in
      either .lnk or .url. This function will attempt to add that file extension if
      it is not provided.
    
      The underlying COM Object will fail silently in many cases, especially due to
      improperly formatted link paths. This function will test the existence of the
      expected link using this parameter and fail if it is not found.
    
      .PARAMETER Target
    
      The target of the shortcut.
    
      This path must exist. This function will attempt to expand the path to its
      absolute value.
    
      .PARAMETER SpecialFolder
    
      The Windows special folder to contain this shortcut.
    
      If you want to create a shortcut at one of the system managed paths, such as
      the Desktop or the Start Menu, you should use the special tokens provided.
      The most commonly used are
    
        * CommonDesktop
        * CommonStartup
        * CommonPrograms
    
      If you provide a special folder, the Link parameter may contain a simple
      "name" and not a file path.
    
      The full list of special folders can be found here:
    
      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.environment.specialfolder(v=vs.110).aspx
    
      .PARAMETER Icon
    
      The icon of the shortcut.
    
      This can take several forms and, due to this, is not validated carefully. You
      can provide an absolute file path (this is your responsibility), like
    
        "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"
    
      Or, you can provide an absolute file path and an index into the resources of
      that program, like
    
        "C:\Windows\notepad.exe, 1"
    
      .PARAMETER Description
    
      The tooltip to display on the shortcut.
    
      .PARAMETER Launch
    
      Whether to launch this link immediately after creating it. Useful for links
      created in the CommonStartup special folder.
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-Shortcut -Link "foo" -Target "foo.exe" -SpecialFolder "CommonPrograms" -Description "Foo Bar"
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Uninstall-Shortcut -Link "foo" -SpecialFolder "CommonDesktop"
    
      .LINK
