How to Copy & Paste in Gmail

by Michaele Curtis

Gmail is a webmail client offered by Google to users since 2007. It is fairly new compared to the major Web mail providers Yahoo! Mail, Hotmail or AOL Mail. Gmail, however, has made a name for itself by offering unprecedented email storage space and integrating several features into the mail client. Overall, you use Gmail's email services just like any other email client, including offering copy and paste features to move text or images.


Log into your Gmail account and navigate to the information you want to copy to another location.


Highlight the information you want to copy. Right-click your mouse over the information. Click "Copy" in the drop-down menu that appears.


Move your mouse pointer to the area you want to paste that information to. Right-click your mouse and click "Paste" to move a copy of the information there.
