  • Select the bottom-most entry in the list and then right-click again to open another selection.

  • Click on the three vertical dots at the top right of your screen.

  • Under Zoom, use -/+ to adjust the font size as required.

  • Holding down the left mouse button, sweep the mouse over the required text and release the left button.

  • Press Ctrl+C or select with the right mouse button to copy the text.
