For what it's worth:
I ran into the same "problem" when I was porting some apps to Windows 10;
so I decided to restore the old behaviour by running this code during
startup (when starting inside a console):

static void console_disable_quick_edit()
     DWORD console_mode;
     HANDLE console_handle = GetStdHandle( STD_INPUT_HANDLE );

     if( NULL == console_handle )
     { return; }

     if( GetConsoleMode( console_handle, &console_mode ) )
         console_mode &= ~ENABLE_QUICK_EDIT_MODE;
         SetConsoleMode( console_handle, (console_mode | ENABLE_EXTENDED_FLAGS) );

     CloseHandle( console_handle );

Regards, Andreas
