In this video, we learn how to activate Linux windows without losing selected text. To avoid losing the texts, you can just click on the title bar so that the highlighted part doesn't remove. If you don't want to do this, there is an alternative. Simply mouse over the text that you have highlighted and scroll with the wheel that's on your mouse. After this, right click on the text and then you can copy what you need to. Now, you can go back to the other window you have open and paste it in, this only takes a few seconds and is a fast alternative!
