Copy and paste

If you want to copy text from one application to another, you have a number of ways to do it:

1. With keyboard shortcuts

  • With the mouse, highlight the text you want to copy.
  • Press the CTRL key and the C key at the same time. This copies the text into the computer's memory.
  • Place the mouse cursor where you want to insert your text.
  • Press the CTRL key and the V key at the same time. This pastes the text into the new location.

2. Using the menu

  • Most programs that deal with text will have an Edit menu.
  • As above, highlight your text, then click Edit > Copy.
  • Place the cursor where you want to insert your next text, then click Edit > Paste.
