Often we want to copy text from these dialog boxes, which is sometimes not possible with the Ctrl+C command. For example, suppose you have installed software and a short manual appears after the installation is complete and you want to copy this text to your notepad. You will try to right-click and select the text, or press Ctrl+C. But sometimes it doesn’t work. In this case, you can use a freeware called Textify. As with GetWindowText, GTText or JOCR, you can copy non-selectable text from Textify into Windows dialog boxes.

Textify is free portable software that runs on almost all versions of Windows, including Windows 10/8.1/8/7/Vista. There are no other system requirements for this Windows freeware.

To start with Textify, download it and click on its executable to open it.

It offers very few possibilities and is therefore very easy to use. You do not need to understand anything to copy non-selectable text under Windows from a software dialog or system error message window. If you get such a dialog box, make sure it stays open, otherwise it will not work.

To copy text that cannot be selected, click the dialog box or error message window and press Shift+Center with your mouse. The text selection bar is displayed as follows:

Now select the text, copy and paste it anywhere, including Notepad, Word, etc.

If you are using a laptop without an external mouse, you may not have the center mouse button (wheel). In this case, you can change the default settings. You can select Ctrl or Alt instead of the default Shift key and right or left mouse button, or click.

That’s all he owns.

If you want to copy text from the image, you can also consult JOCR.
