How to Copy & Paste Onlineby Jenna Miller
"Copy and paste" is a commonly used computer term that refers to the process of quickly transferring text from one location to another. This can be useful for web searches and document creation. Knowing how to adequately highlight text is an important step in using this tool. When highlighting text, make sure to hold the mouse button down until all of the text you want to copy is highlighted. This will ensure that no "cleaning up'' of the text will be necessary.
Copy and paste using right-mouse click
Right click on the mouse button while the cursor is over the highlighted text. This will bring up a box with several options available, including copy and paste.
Select "copy'' first to instruct the computer to store a copy of the text temporarily.
Right click in the area where the text is to be pasted. Select the paste option and the text should appear.
