You have to use right click context menu to copy and paste things.
The reason is that in the coding world ctrl + c actually does something else.

Ctrl+Any will not work as the function keys because they have other uses, which is something that all consoles have. If you want to actually use one of those functions, then use Ctrl+Shift+Any instead.

Copy: Ctrl+Shift+C (I'd prefer bringing up the context menu for this)
Paste: Ctrl+Shift+V
