That's interesting, since Eli says it shouldn't be necessary on
Windows (and he sure knows a hell of a lot more about Emacs than
I do, and much more so specifically about Emacs on windows).

That'd mean that your Emacs is confused somehow, but why?

I don't know exactly what you want to achieve (manual operation, or
ultimately some automatism?), but you might start here:

 - after a (normal) yank, the last mark is at the start of the
   yanked text and point at its end (but mark is not active).
   So if you activate it, e.g. by

     M-x eval-expression RET (activate-mark) RET

   you get the just yanked stuff "selected". You'll have to
   wrap some of that into commands to make it practical, though.
   Season to taste.

 - there isn't, AFAIK, a hook hanging off the yank event itself
   (a pity, IMHO), but if you somehow manage to attach the text
   property named 'yank-handler (having as value a function +
   arg provided by you), then this function gets the chance to
   do its thing just after yanking.

   Search for "yank-handler" in the Emacs Lisp manual. I'm a
   bit pressed now, but if you nudge me I'd be willing to whip
   up an example.
