How to avoid QuickEdit mode in Windows Command Prompt from freezing scripts?

QuickEdit mode in Command(CMD) Prompt can be useful if you wish to quickly highlight and copy text directly from the command prompt instead of redirecting output to a file. However, it has its drawbacks. If you have a batch script running, selecting text in the console will pause the script execution until the text is deselected. This can be a problem if the script is expected to continue without pause.

The above mentioned behaviour affects the Testsigma Agent scripts as well and we would recommend you to disable it so as to avoid the Agent window getting frozen due to user clicks. We can perform the below steps to disable the QuickEdit mode easily using a Command Prompt window:

 

1. Right click on the Command Prompt Title bar

2. Choose Properties - uncheck QuickEdit Mode, and click OK.

 

If you want to disable it for all future command prompts too, do the same with Defaults instead of Properties.
