yeah, I am in the same boat. Key commands ctrl + shft + V doesn't work in Safari.

Solution: Right + Click into the Console > Paste

Do you mean the console in the browser or the terminal (command prompt)? If it is the latter you can try 'ctrl + shft + C' or 'ctrl + shft + V'. If it's the console I know in Firefox you can type allow pasting into the console first to enable it.

Hope this helps

I am having the same issue.... and I'm referring to the course provided console in the browser.

I am using Firefox on a Windows machine for this course.

When I right click in the console and try to type paste (like he says in the video) ... it opens an instance of file explorer.

How do we paste in a link from the web for use with the curl program?
