Cut and paste


Learning how to cut and paste can make your life on the computer much easier.
It saves time and is more accurate that retyping the information, particularly if you do it several times.
If you know how to highlight words on your computer, you can easily copy sections of text and paste them somewhere else.

Open a text document or an email that contains some type.
Click at the end of the block of text you located in Step 1 and drag with your mouse back to the beginning of the text to highlight the entire block of type you wish to copy.
Release the mouse. The selected area should be highlighted in a color, usually blue.

Right-click the mouse on the highlighted text and a drop-down menu appears.
Select "Cut" to copy the highlighted text and remove it from its original position.
Select "Copy" to copy the highlighted text and leave it in its original position.
Paste the text you copied.
Right-click in an editable text box and select "Paste" from the drop-down menu.
The text appears in its new location.
Alternatively, highlight the text and hold down the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard while you press the "X" key to cut the text or the "C" key to copy the text.
These keyboard shortcuts copy the text that is highlighted.
To paste it, click in a text box and use the "Ctrl" and "V" shortcut to paste.

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 now have Works, rather than Word on my computer. I also now have Hotmail rather than OutLook Express . . . which both are a heartache to me. One reason is that I used to be able to highlight and drag...


Highlighting is similar to cutting the portion of text to be pasted at an alternative area on the page displayed. Right clicking on the portion of text should generate the features list to cut text as copies to be later pasted onto another area. A situation where text cutting or copying is achievable though does to allow to paste on the same area has alternate capabilities of achieving success. Cut the email text required paste to an opened empty Microsoft word document to edit into desired specifications. Usually, the email has least capacity to allow several functions all at once. A cut text may be possible least allowing pasting since the program is still in enable mode until uncut is achieved. For example, cut the portion required to paste on clipboards or Microsoft word document. Once the text that was cut is pasted elsewhere, the function of cut has been disabled. Returning to the email area requiring pasting should be achievable with an open display area requesting a past feature. In which instance, the open Microsoft document contains the copy that would provide display to the email section requesting displays.
