copy data to clipboard
Copy Data to Clipboard should be a simple right-click context menu capability --- as it has been in Tableau for years. Often, user wants data being displayed without going through export to CSV and import into Excel. Just simple copy-paste of data out of visual to clipboard to ... whatever intended ... is extremely useful.
This capability would be very useful for ad-hoc data researches where you can utilize full power of PowerQuery + data modeling for smaller sets of complex data.
how clumsy always need to download to CSV then Parse...
genius Microsoft developers pls act quick!

Any updates on this Microsoft?? Or should I call you "Microslow" ?
This would be reallr helpful. Right click on a cell of a table visual and have "Copy" option that copies value to clipboard.

Crazy that this isn't in there yet.

Echoing others comments in the thread. Lack of this feature is one of the main reasons preventing greater usage in our organization. Would be a huge win if this can get added soon.

Power BI team - please add "copy to clipboard" functionality to PBI Desktop. I deal with 10's of millions of rows of data and often need to re-type unique identifiers into SQL queries (or other tools) for deeper analysis / research.
Sending data to csv for every finding is much too time-consuming.
Would be very useful!!!

In powerbi tables, it is extremely important to allow users to copy data to clipboard.
