In a Linux Machine or in the Browser:
If you are accessing Paperspace from your web browser or a Linux machine, this requires syncing your local computer's clipboard with your VM, so that your VM knows that you want to paste to it.

- Click the small circle button in the Paperspace interface and then click "Sync Clipboard"
- Follow the instructions on the screen to paste. On a PC, you'll enter CTL+V to paste. On a Mac, you'll first do CMD+V to sync and then CTL+V to paste into your PC.
