DC | 1024 MB RAM

SQL 2014 | 1024 MB RAM

Hyper-V Enhanced Session Mode

I just learned a new trick lately that i wanna share.

In Hyper-V if you want to copy directly to the virtual machine¬†using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V without first connecting to an RDP session. You can enable “Allow enhanced session mode” in Hyper-V settings and problems solved.
