Windows Phone account authentication tip

A lot of Windows phone users will have set up two factor authentication on their Microsoft account. This necessitates getting an authentication code each time some new app which needs to use your account has been installed. So... you will have installed Authenticator to provide that code.
Up until today each time I used Authenticator I used to remember the six digit code and type it in to the required fields in the requesting app. On a whim I tried long pressing the code and guess what? A "copy to clipboard" item appeared in the menu saving me the bother of remembering and typing in a number. I thought I'd pass this on.
