A tip on copying a message box text with 2 key strokes

when you get a message box with lots of text (mainly on error messages) and you need to copy the text of the message, simply press ctrl+c , you'll hear a beep from windows, then you can paste it every where and you'll get a 'text like' message box with the message and the buttons.
