How to copy/paste in terminal on Windows

Massimo Coletti
Hi forum,

I'm using gvim on Windows, checking the new :terminal feature.
How can I copy/paste text inside the terminal window? The usual DOS way of marking with the mouse and right-clicking does not seem to work. The only way I found is going to Terminal-Normal mode with CTRL-W N , yanking the text with vim commands, returning to Terminal-Job mode and pasting with CTRL-W "". Is there a better, easier, way?
