  • How do I cut, copy and paste? North Dakota

    Copying is the act of making a duplicate. Cutting is the act of removing something and placing it in another location (Deleting is the act of removing something entirely). Cutting sometimes works like deleting. Pasting is the act of placing anything that has been cut or copied into a new location. There are many ways to copy or cut, and paste, but all of them involve highlighting what you want to copy or cut first.

    For a file, simply clicking on the file once will highlight it.

    For text, position your cursor at the beginning of the text you want to highlight, hold the left mouse button down and drag the cursor to the end of the text you want to highlight, then release the mouse button.

    To copy the highlighted item (3 options):
    1. From the menu-bar at the top of any application, select Edit-->Copy, -or-
    2. Right-Click on the highlighted item and select Copy from the menu that shows, -or-
    3. On the keyboard, hit Ctrl-C

    To cut the highlighted item (3 options):
    1. From the menu-bar at the top of any application, select Edit-->Cut, -or-
    2. Right-Click on the highlighted item and select Cut from the menu that shows, -or-
    3. On the keyboard, hit Ctrl-X

    To paste the item you just copied or cut (3 options):
    1. From the menu-bar at the top of any application, select Edit-->Paste, -or-
    2. Right-Click where you want to place the highlighted item and select Paste from the menu that shows, -or-
    3. Click where you want to place the item, then on the keyboard, hit Ctrl-V
