Colored copy of PuTTY window

Super User Asked by Kuroki Kaze on January 3, 2022

I need to copy colored text from PuTTY window without losing color information. Console is in UTF-8 mode. What is the best method? Any parsable output will do.

Looks like this option has moved to a submenu since the answer was posted in 2010.

In 2020, I have Putty Release 0.74:

Window->selection->copy->Copy to clipboard in RTF as well as plain text Animated GIF showing steps

Change Settings... > Window / Selection

At the bottom of the PuTTY Configuration dialog is a section "Formatting of pasted characters".
Tick the checkbox for Paste to clipboard in RTF as well as plain text,

Click Apply, then select your text and paste it somewhere.
