It depends on your operating system. Windows requires you to use copy/paste menu items, while Linux XOrg and Linux Terminals has this feature.
FYI: I just found mintty package within cygwin now allows mouse selection and mouse button pastes. mintty also puts a nice icon of itself on your desktop too!
(It sounds like you're using Windows.)
