How do you paste to terminal

Just watching the video here where the file path is copied from gihub and pasted directly into the terminal with right clicks.

I can copy from github and past anywhere else except the workspaces console/terminal area. Right click has no option to paste to terminal has this been disabled since the videos were created?

I have seen a lot of mention of this on the forums, seems to be a common problem.

Here's a potential fix: "Hey, I was having the same problem (Chrome Version 47.0.2526.80 m on a PC) where I couldn't paste the link while using the Treehouse terminal console. I found that if I right-clicked while cursoring over the title bar (very top) of the browser window for the console, I could select to paste the link I had copied and it indeed pasted into the Treehouse command line as desired."

I tried that but it does not work. No option to paste here. Tried Chrome and Firefox. My console does not even allow me to type the password. Any solutions?
