So copying from the workstation console to the local laptop isn't possible from the VNC console. While the VNC console allows you to paste information from your local machine to the VNC machine, the opposite direction is not supported. You have two (2) options to get information ...

Option 1:

If the lab environment you are using has the Classroom Web App you can use it for the workstation console. This avoids VNC and gives you the terminal locally in your browser window. Copy and paste works very well like this.

Option 2:

Use something like Pastebin, Github, or something else. This requires that the Workstation VM has Internet access and you are essentially transferring text between the lab environment and another cloud enabled service.

Hello @riemann , No I am afraid you cannot to your local laptop.

You can check if certain lab environment has internet connectivity - then you can do that in a browser in the VM console.
