Uninstall the mouse drivers and then do a reinstall If the problem is still there you might check to see if the mouse button is sticking or if it is damaged. If you have another mouse try it in place of the one you are using.

How do you copy paste


HOW TO COPY AND PASTE ON WINDOWS
Introduction
A basic, but important, concept to understand when using a computer is cut, copy and paste. These actions will allow you to easily copy or move data between one application and another or copy and move files and directories from one location to another. Though the procedures in this tutorial are considered to be basic concepts, you would be surprised as to how many people do not understand these essential features. Even more importantly, once you understand these fundamentals you will be able to use this knowledge on almost any computer operating system as long as you know the corresponding keys that are used for these features. For the purpose of this tutorial I will cover how to cut, copy and paste with the Windows operating system. Other operating systems, such as Linux, Unix, and Apple support these concepts as well but will not be discussed in this tutorial.

Introducing the WINDOWS clipboard
Windows has a feature called the Windows Clipboard. The clipboard gives Windows users the ability to store information in memory and than retrieve that information for later use. The cut, copy and paste functions rely on the clipboard in order to work. The process of placing data into the clipboard is know as copying or cutting. The process of retrieving the data from that clipboard and placing it into another location is called pasting. We will cover the specifics on these actions in more detail later in the tutorial. For now it is important to understand that the clipboard is used to contain the data that you want to paste into another location. If there is no information contained in the clipboard, then you will not be able to paste anything. Any data that is stored in the clipboard via a copy or cut command will stay there until it is overwritten by another copy or cut command. When you paste that data, the data is not removed from the clipboard, and can be pasted over and over as many times as wish. The data in the clipboard will be erased, though, when you shut down or restart your computer.

How to highlight txt in a document
Before you can copy, cut, or paste text data you must be able to highlight, or select, the text that you want to perform the action on. This is called highlighting and allows you to select all the information in a document or certain portions of it. Once the text is highlighted you can then copy or cut that information depending on your needs. An example of what highlighted text looks like is below:


There are four standard methods used to highlight text and they are as follows:
Use your mouseUsing your mouse to select text could not be any easier. Simply find the location you would like to start selecting from and place your mouse cursor there. Then press and hold the left mouse button and drag the cursor to the last area you would like to highlight. You will find that as your are holding the left mouse button and dragging the mouse cursor, the text between where you first pressed the button and where you dragged the cursor to will now be highlighted.
Use the applications edit menu to select all
Windows applications that support copy and paste will usually contain an edit menu. Under this edit menu you will see an option to Select All. When you click on that menu option the entire contents of the file you are working for will be highlighted.
Right click your document
Many programs give you the ability to select all the data in your document, as described above, by right-clicking on the document and then clicking on Select All. the entire contents of the file will now be highlighted.
Use your keyboard
You can use your keyboard to select text by using the arrow keys while holding down the shift key. Place your cursor at the location you would like to start highlighting and then press and hold the shift key while you move your cursor with the keyboards arrow keys. As long as you are holding down the shift key, as you move the cursor with the arrow keys the data that you are moving the cursor over will become highlighted.Pressing Control+AWhen you press Control and then the letter A on your keyboard at the same time the program will select all the data in the document similar to how Select All works in the previous methods.Now that you know how to highlight text, you should practice the the art of highlighting text. You can do this by opening Notepad and typing in a few lines of text. Then practice the different methods of highlighting text. To open Notepad you can double-click its icon found in the Start Menu under the Accessories submenu.

I need to copy text with this built in mouse on my Toshiba laptop...cannot figure it out.


Hi there! To copy text follow these steps, 1) Put the mouse cursor at the beginning of the text you want to highlight. Click the left mouse button and then drag the cursor to the end of the text that you want to copy. The text should now be highlighted blue. 2) Right click on the highlighted blue text 3) Left click on the "copy" option in the menu that just opened.
If you cannot get the right click menu to work, there is a keyboard shortcut for "copy" - CTRL-C After the text is highlighted, press those two keys at the same time to copy.
To paste, right click where you want the text to go, then select "paste" - keyboard shortcut is CRTL-V

How do i delete in wordpad?


Highlight the text you want to delete by holding down the left mouse button and dragging the mouse pointer over the text, then let go of the left mouse button.

Now you can just push the DELETE button or the BACKSPACE button on your keyboard.

Or you can use your mouse to place the mouse pointer on that section of highlighted text and then click the RIGHT mouse button once. Then select CUT from the drop down menu options. This will delete that section of text.

Good luck.

How do I start my Lenovo type 4057-CTO in "safemode"..?


Shut down the system (power off, not hibernate) and then turn it back on.

As soon as the Windows logo appears, hit the "F6" key, once or twice per second, and keep hitting it until you get a boot menu.
The boot menu will be plain text (no graphics, no windows, no mouse cursor, etc) listing things like:
  • Last Known Good Configuration
  • Safe Mode
  • Safe Mode with Networking
  • Command Prompt

etc.

Use the arrow keys to highlight the one that you want and then hit Enter
