Do you still remember the tip that I shared with you about copying text from Windows error messages? It is very useful but unfortunately this only works on dialog boxes that is created by Windows operating system. If the window message is created by a third party software, we cannot copy the text in the dialog box by simple pressing CTRL+C key.

I will show you how to copy the text off a dialog box control or message box, so that it can be pasted as text into a notepad, email, forum or whatever.

Here’s not 1, but 7 freeware tools that is able to extract or copy text inside any windows or software. Some can even do more than that. So let’s check it out…
