It sounds like you’re using the web remote console to access your Droplet. The remote console is intended for emergency access and recovery in case you are not able to log in to your Droplet via SSH. Therefore, it has limited functionality and does not support copy/paste.

We recommend using an SSH client to log in to your Droplet and manage it. Here are some tutorials that should help you do that:

For the record, you can paste in PuTTy by right-clicking anywhere on the terminal.
