Hello! I installed in my desktop Debian 10 Buster in BIOS mode, installed NVIDIA drivers from non-free repositories and system and graphics worked on perfection.

Re: Windows 10 not detected

Hello! Thank for your replies. If you prefer to reinstall Debian, make sure you boot the installer in EFI mode (the boot screen will be a GRUB menu). It solved my problem. I did an installation in EFI mode after setting the BIOS to use "Boot From UEFI" from storage devices. Kind regards.

Copy terminal output - paste into text editor

Hello!

First, let me ask for your understanding in the maybe irrelevant question.

Is it possible using a terminal and copy part of its output / content into a text editor or another open terminal session?

Thank you in advance.
