I can't copy stuff in the console!!! I made an encryptor to keep things secret on hangouts at school. What's the use of it if I can't copy the encrypted message???

EDIT: This seems to be an issue on my Chrome (Version 95.0.4638.69 (Official Build) (64-bit)). In Opera (Version 80.0.4170.63), I can see the "Copy" in the dropdown.

Original post:
When I right-click the results in the console and try to find "copy" in the dropdown to copy my text results, I can only see "copy image" as an option. Did something change?

Screenshot of right-click in console:

When I copy the image and save it in paint, I get the black console screen as a screenshot:
resultant image

Edit:
It's fine in Opera.

Just highlight the text, and right click. Click on the option that says copy.

To paste, just right click anything, then click paste on the small pop-up menu.

You can also right click and select copy.

Are you an explorer? You might have to turn off explorer mode for this, since ctrl+c is an actual terminal command.
