How to disable Visual mode in VIM

Have you witnessed, suddenly your copy paste stopped working from windows box to putty terminal into VIM insert console,  more over to it, there is a strange string named as VISUAL at the bottom of the screen.

Visual mode is a feature of VIM which changes the interaction with vim when there is a mouse selection. This made copy+pasting annoying, let know it's cure here.

Open terminal and create a hidden file under your home directory as "vimrc"

# touch ~/.vimrc

# echo "set mouse-=a" >> ~/.vimrc

And yes you are done, back to usual mode no Visual :)
