How to copy and paste text onto the java console?

Hi, I'm new to TreeHouse and I am wondering how I would be able to copy and paste "clear && javac TreeStory.java && java TreeStory". I tried to use ctrl + c and crtl + v but it they don't seem to work.

I don't think you can. In cmd you can paste into the console, but not on the virtual workspace. The best you can do is type it out once, then use the UP arrow key to access it each time thereafter.
