Hi @Ananda_Kedlaya ,
Here’s a guide you may follow for virtual box: How to enable copy and paste in a VirtualBox running Ubuntu Linux :

Let me know if you are using some other emulator so we can figure it out.

I’m using VMware Workstation 16 Player
and it has no proper options

Hi @Ananda_Kedlaya ,
Check out the following: 14.04 - Copy/paste and drag&drop not working in VMware machine with Ubuntu - Ask Ubuntu!

I went through it and executed those commands but its not showing any change.

Hi @Ananda_Kedlaya,
In that case, you may try using another VM host like virtual box.

I have forwarded this to the team and we’ll get back to you shortly.

Hi @Ananda_Kedlaya ,

I will suggest you to try out the vagrant. You can sync folder between host and guest OS and you can write the code on your windows and can run the code inside ubuntu.

Do let know in case you need further assistance.
