AFAIK you can easily copy the text from your text box.

Check if you disabled the text box or used any copy prevention code for it.

Copying to the clipboard is easy:

Pasting into other applications is harder, if you want to do it directly from C# rather than letting the user do it. You can do it via SendKeys[^] but to be honest, that isn't a good practice: if your application started messing with my clipoard just to transfer info to Word or Excel, then I would unistall it with extreme prejudice.

What are you trying to achieve that you think this is a necessary and good idea?
