Either turn off "quick edit" (<ALT>+<SPACE> -> properties -> options) or use the keyboard shortcuts.

ALT and the arrow keys are all you really need, but you can also use ALT -> F -> S.

You probably have "Quick Edit" on by default.

Quick edit means you can drag and copy text from the console easier, but any program that takes mouse input and doesn't set the console mode to enable mouse input can not accept mouse input until quickedit is disabled.

System wide defaults:

control console.dll

Othere settings may either be related to the console title or be part of a shortcut that started cmd.exe.
