  1. You cannot copy individual characters from putty using keyboard. You can copy the entire data from the putty screen by enabling it as below :
    Putty settings => Window => Behavior => tick the option “System menu appears on ALT-Space” => Apply
    Once the system menu option is enabled, you can press alt+space and a window comes where you can select “Copy all to clipboard”
    hope this helps !
