If you mean pasting in relation to cut / copy & pasting

How it works
When you cut or copy something, for example text, it is saved into the clipboard. Then when you paste, the text that is in the clipboard gets pasted. You can paste that same text more than once, it stays in the clipboard until it is over written (by cutting ot copying something else) or you restart your PC.

How to use it
There is a couple of ways to cut / copy & paste

1. Use right clicking menu
you can select something, some text for example, then right click on it with your mouse and select Cut or Copy. To paste right click where you want the text to be pasted and select Paste

2. Use application's Edit drop down menu
you can select something, some text for example, then select the application's Edit drop down menu and select Cut or Copy. To paste click where you want the text to be pasted select the application's Edit drop down menu and select Paste

3. Use keyboard shortcuts
you can select something, some text for example, then press Ctrl + X to Cut or Ctrl + C to Copy. To paste click where you want the text to be pasted then press Ctrl + V to Paste

Hope this helps

Copy and paste


Thanks for posting your question here at fixya! ;)
You must select text (or some item in the document or content you are working with) to turn on the menu item you wish to use. On the keyboard, the keyboard shortcut for copy is ctrl+c, and the shortcut for paste is ctrl+v. After copying the item you wish to paste, (you may want to click into the area you wish to paste) use the ctrl+v to finish the paste function.

Copy paste function does not work


Copy and Paste has to work. Maybe you are doing something wrong.

For example if you copy three rows of excel data then when you get ready to paste it you must select and highlight three rows to paste it.

There are other ways to copy and paste something tool For example highlight what you want to copy then put the mouse pointer on it and do a Right Click and select copy. You can also Right Click Where you want to paste it.

Also you can highlight what you want to copy then Press and Hold the CTRL then hit the letter C key. When you want to paste it you can simply put the mouse where you want it to go, then Press and Hold the CTRL key then hit the letter V key.

Of course there are the way most people know which is to hit File/Edit/Copy at the top of the window or File/Edit/Paste.

I was trying to copy and paste a story from word to facebook quizazz but it did work. please help/ any suggestions?


Did you use the command (apple symbol) key + the 'C' key to copy then Command + 'V' key to paste? If you did, try using the same actions but from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen (Edit -> copy, Edit -> paste)
If that still doesn't work, you could try copy and pasting the text into another facebook window, maybe a chat box, then copying from there and pasting into the quizzazz box.

How do I paste something to my browser


To paste the copied content from the source, you can use right-click button on your mouse and select "paste" option at the destination place, or you can also use a key combination (i.e. "Ctrl+v") to paste it to the destination/browser.


P.S:
Copy and paste only works in the "address bar" of your browser, the websites you see/surf come from the external data sources so you cannot paste anything over there (if u planning to..)


Thanks,

I am tyring to copy and paste but it won't work


Hi,

What program are you in that you are trying to copy and paste? If it is a PDF file, they will not allow you to do it. You would have to convert it, then you could.

In most other programs you can 1.) select the part you want to copy 2.) click Edit, Copy. 3.) Go to where you would like to paste it 4.) click Edit Paste.

There are also shortcut keys that work in some cases where Edit Copy/Paste does not. To try this, 1.) select where you want to copy 2.) hold the Ctrl key and press C 3.) and then go to where you want to paste, and hold the Ctrl key and press V.

Please let me know if you need further assitance.
Thanks

M. Works won't let me paste anything onto document f/the Int.


After copying the contents you need go to edit on microsoft works and click on paste special. A small window should open asking you to select from three options. Click on unformatted unicode text then click ok. That should do it. Although italics and bold letters come out as regular print like the rest it does paste all that you've copied. This usually happens when you haven't updated your internet. After updating mine I no longer needed to do this process again.
