How to Copy & Paste a Calendar

by Filonia LeChat

Calendars are useful to keep track of your upcoming appointments, meetings, and family events. Recreate calendar information in another document by copying and pasting the calendar. You can accomplish this with just a few clicks.

Open the software program with the calendar. Click the outer edge of the calendar to highlight it. Press the "Ctrl" and "C" keys to copy the calendar.

Scroll to a new place in the document or open a new software program and start a new document. Press the "Ctrl" and "V" keys to paste in the calendar.

Alternatively, you can press the "Ctrl" and "Print Screen" keys on the keyboard to perform a screen capture of the calendar. Open a graphics software program, start a new document and press the "Ctrl" and "V" keys to paste in the calendar screenshot. Delete any extra screen grab areas such as dual monitors or the system tray.
