-Note that there is no copy-paste functionality ​in option 2 of CCDT running on Windows. That ison Linux with xclip installed, you could expect to be able to press **Ctrl+Shift+V** to paste the current directory'​s name as the Composition name, once option 2 had been selected. On Windows, this doesn'​t work, and you must either type the composition ​name in manuallyor use your mouse to highlight-then-copy the displayed ​directory name that appears in the header area of the CCDT display ​and then right-click and paste.+Note that in Linux, with xclip installed, you would be able to take Option 2 (to provide the name of the work being tagged) and then press **Ctrl+Shift+V** to paste the current directory'​s name as the Composition name. This makes sense when you've already created all the physical directories to store a CD's tracks correctly and the directory name thus correct describes the composition'​s actual name. On Windows, however, this functionality ​doesn'​t work
 + 
 +Fortunatelythere'​s a couple of workarounds. In the first place, the current directory ​name is still displayed at the top left of the screen when you take Option 2so you could simply ​use your mouse to manually ​highlight ​and right-click+copy ​then right-click+paste that into the appropriate entry field when prompted. 
 + 
 +But the rather subtler fix is as follows: 
 + 
 +  * Start a background xserver before launching any instances of CCDT (i.e., type **startxwin &** as the first thing you launch in a Cygwin session) 
 +  * Set a DISPLAY variable correctly (i.e., type **export DISPLAY=:​0.0** so that Cygwin knows how to connect to your new xserver 
 +  * Now launch CCDT as normal 
 +  * When you take option 2 to provide the composition name, press **Shift+Insert** to paste in the current ​directory'​s ​name 
 + 
 +Note that this Shift+Insert key combo only works if you've switched them on as a Cygwin shortcut. That means you need to click the Cygwin logo at the top-left of a running Cygwin terminal session, click **Options** ​and then click **Keys**:

 +{{ :​wiki:​software:​ccdtwin99.png?​direct |}} 
 + 
 +The first checkbox shown in the '​Shortcuts'​ section there needs to be switched on, basically. If it is, then you can use Shift+Insert as a quick way to paste. If you've launched an xserver ​and set the DISPLAY variable before running CCDT, then your current directory name is auto-copied into the clipboard... at which point Shift+Insert can paste it whenever is appropriate.
  
 If much of the above was gobbledygook to you, fear not! A much longer version of the process is documented, in depth and at length, complete with lots of screenshots [[wiki:​software:​winccdtlong|in this article]], so please go read that and follow the steps explained there in great detail. If much of the above was gobbledygook to you, fear not!
