Hey, reghakr, sorry. I know this is becoming a bit annoying but at least I would like just to know whether or not you and others can select and copy part of text from a window by dragging the cursor on it; as you see, I can't.

I can also do it in program windows as Opera, MSOffice, Autocad, OpenOffice etc but I meant in Windows7's windows, as the one I mentioned before. I'm referring to the plain text those information windows show. At least in my case, when I drag the cursor on it, the text is not highlighted therefore there's no how to select it to be copied. In addition, edit menu options are grayed out, there's no right-click context menu and Ctrl+C neither works.
For instance: I was interested to copy only the CPU specifications that system window shows and found out that there's no way to accomplish this simple task. You have to type elsewhere what is shown.
