How to paste in rxvt cygwin

I have been looking for this for ages. It used to be that if I didn't
have my mouse plugged into my laptop I couldn't paste to a cygwin
terminal (where I spend most of my time). By middle clicking the mouse I
got a paste - but on laptop, there are only two buttons on the trackpad.
But I found the solution - shift + left-click pastes! Hooray!
Shift-insert seems to work as well. Discovered it here:

  1. I usually end up right clicking the titlebar and drilling down in the menu to find the copy and paste commands... Or am I thinking of PuTTY?

    Hmm, I can't remember the specifics of while running X under Cygwin, but click both buttons at the same time *should* work does when I use a 2 button mouse on "native" X-windows...

    Hi There,

    I am in new zealand and me and a few friends are trying to set up a Mesh network. We are going to use Friefunk firmware but on their website you have to download the files one at a time which will take years. Do you know where I could get all of these all at once or in one zip file.
