How do I post a message on my timeline on facebook and send it, I am using a tablet not a pc.

You might try COPY/PASTE:
A virtual, temporary storage area. Information (in the form of text, files, graphics, sound or video) can be copied to the Clipboard from one program or location and pasted elsewhere. The Clipboard can only hold one block of information at a time. Whenever something is copied to the Clipboard, it replaces whatever was there before. There are many platforms which support the Clipboard function.

Point mouse cursor to beginning point in text to be copied. Press and hold the "ctrl" key on the keyboard and click mouse. Entire section of text will be highlighted in blue. [NOTE: If only a portion of what you wish to copy is highlighted, then move mouse cursor to end of text, press and hold the "shift" key and click mouse]. Right click mouse and select "copy" from the menu window that opens.

Open the window you wish to place the copy (e-mail, FB profile page--status box, etc), click where you wish to place copy, then right click and select "paste" from the menu window that opens. NOTE: Edit as you would normally typed text.

[shortcut paste: press and hold ctrl key and press letter "V"].

Depends on the application. Most Windows applications use Control+C will Copy the selected item to a CLIPBOARD. Control+V will place it in the application from the CLIPBOARD.

It is used to copy files between folders or text between programs for instance.

Hoe to copy & paste for I Mac

How to copy and paste is similar on most computers.
1. Use your mouse to select (highlight) the picture or text you want to copy and paste.
2. While the information is selected, use your mouse and go the the Edit pull down menu in why ever application program you are using and select Copy. Once done you now have a copy in memory.
3. Go to the place where you want to paste the information and click with your mouse on the spot where you want to paste the information. For example in an email, select the line in the document where you want it to go, and then once you see you have a flashing text cursor symbol in the correct place, again to to the Edit menu and select Paste on the pull down menu. Your item should then paste at the position you selected.

If you happen to have a 2 button mouse, as often used with PC's you can right click the item you want to copy once selected and a pop up menu will come up asking if you want to cut, copy, or paste.
