The iPhone way is different. For anything you might want to use in another app, Apple has tried to anticipate the common cases and make them directly available. You don’t copy a picture you took in the Camera app, switch to MobileMail, and paste it into a message; you tap the photo to bring up the toolbar, tap the “do something with this picture” button, and then tap the Email Photo button. You don’t copy a URL from MobileSafari, switch to Mail, and paste it into a message; you tap the URL, then click the Share button that appears. (Which button really should be labeled “Email”, unless and until it offers sharing options other than sending an email.)

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.

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.

Pasteing and how it works


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
