Teaching Ditto to paste into SecureCRT

I use Ditto and SecureCRT constantly on my day to day work, but by default – they don’t work well together.

Ditto supports being configured for specific applications to work in a different manner – all you need to do is to update the registry in the correct way.

How to do it?


  1. Save the below into a file named Ditto_SecureCRT.reg
  2. Execute the file and choose Yes when prompted
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



  1. Open the registry editor (Start -> Run -> regedit)
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ditto
  3. If the Key PasteStrings does not exist, create it: Right-Click on Ditto -> New -> Key -> Name it as ‘PasteStrings’
  4. Add a new value for SecureCRT:
    1. Right-Click on PasteStrings -> New -> String Value -> Name it as ‘SecureCRT.exe’
    2. Double click on the new value, and give Value Data the value +{INS}

Either way you do it – the change is immediate, no need for a restart.
