PowerShell execution is paused

Not long ago and just because of a coincidence, I found something strange in PowerShell.
I was executing a script, but this execution took a long, long time and nothing succeeded. I was just waiting, but there wasn’t any error report and the script didn’t finish. The only thing I saw it was a selected point on the PowerShell screen.
So, what has happened? The answer is simple: when you have a selected area on the PowerShell screen, the execution of any command is paused. If you want to resume a command, just right click anywhere in PowerShell window (removing the selection). That’s all, the work will resume.
A simple trick, a simple thing that could be useful just for reading some output informations or for avoiding problems like “Why is it taking so much time to do this?”
