Copy and Paste Tutorial

Even if you know next to nothing about using a computer

this is the one simple task you should learn how to do.

This tutorial teaches the easy and very handy skill of "Copy & Paste"

There are several ways to copy and paste but we will learn the way that I use most often.

First we will learn how to copy and paste.

1 - Place your mouse pointer in front of the first word of the text you want to copy , your pointer will turn into something that looks like an I. Hold down your left mouse button as you drag your mouse over the selection of text you wish to copy. The block of text will change color as you drag. You can select some or all of the text. Lets try it in the white box below

2 - After the text is selected or highlighted, position your cursor over the selected section. 

3 - Right click.

4 - A menu will appear near your cursor. Select Copy from this menu.
Alternate method: (control C) Press the control key and the 'C' key at the same time.

5 - Move to the document or location where you wish to paste the text . Lets use the blank white box below to paste the text into.

6 - Position your cursor in the place where you will insert the text or image.

7 - Right click.

8 - A menu will appear near your cursor. Select Paste from this menu.
Alternate method: (control V) Press the control key and the 'V' key at the same time.
The copied text will appear.
