Is there a way to force putty to use Ctrl+V on Zorin OS (Ubuntu based).

I like the windows behavior, where selecting stuff copy it, and right click pastes it.


I do it the following: I got a Ubuntu WSL on my Windows 10 PC. I also use CMDer as console emulator, because it is way more convenient. You can access your WSL with CMDer. Install putty on your WSL

sudo apt install putty

and connect to your Zorin OS with putty on command line. CMDer will accept crtl + c + v and also the pasting and rightclicking.
