Windows 10 is made up of many new Command Prompt features that Windows 7 or Windows 8 don't have. These new features include word wrap selection (copy lines in the "Command Prompt" and paste them into Notepad), resizing of the "Command Prompt" window, transparency in the "Command Prompt" window with the help of the " opacity slider ”(the transparency range can be set between 30% and 100%), enable the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl (ie Ctrl + A, Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V).
In previous technical previews for Windows 10, Microsoft disabled these features by citing compatibility issues. After the release of Windows 10, it was accessible to all users. Since many of us aren't familiar with these new features, sticking to the old one isn't a bad idea. Windows 10 also allows options for using “Legacy Console”, which follows the traditional way of entering command prompt commands used in Windows 8 and earlier. All new “Command Prompt” features are disabled when the “Legacy Console” is enabled.
In simple terms, using the “Legacy Console” feature in Windows 10 is like using the Command Prompt in Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.
To enable the legacy console at the command prompt, please try the following steps: -
Enter "cmd" in the search bar and press the Enter key. This will open the “Command Prompt” window.
Right click on the title bar and click "Properties".
In the options tab, select the "Use legacy console (requires restart)" checkbox and click "OK".
After this step, the text selection, ie “Enable word wrap selection” and “Extended text selection keys”, will be disabled.
