I assume that you mean the text of the url (i.e. what goes in the address
box of the drop down list, but same strategy works for transferring text
from emacs to any other windows app:

[in emacs]
Move to first character of text to be copy-pasted into msw...
move cursor to end of emacs text
Alt-<tab> ;;to windows app of interest
;; to preserve this functionality, this key combo shouldn,t
;; be overriden in w32 emacs (assuming it's possible).

[in msw]
Alt-d  ;; to highlight text in address box
C-v (i.e. paste, somewhat like emacs' C-y, but less flexible).
