Although as a silver surfer, I have built and maintained several computers, the one thing that I fail to grasp is how to copy and paste. It is maybe an age thing, but I find the copy and paste on 'e' mails, web pages etc., difficult to understand. Would some kind person explain in detail to me, on how to copy and paste various text pages etc. on a computer. Thanks for all advice given.
To be honest,theres not a lot to grasp. click and hold mouse button on one side of text you want to copy.then drag across. Right click on highlighted text. Click on copy. right click on where you want it to go and click paste.
The link is not working so here's a potted version. First you need to select the text, item etc you want to copy. To do this, move your cursor to the start and press the function key <F8>, then move your cursor to the end of the selection area. You will now find that all you want to copy has been highlighted in black. Now you can either use the Edit drop down menu and select the <Copy> option or use the keyboard press <Ctrl><C> to copy the material into the clipboard (a transitory area in your system). Now open the document where you want top paste the item and merely use the Edit drop down menu and select the <Paste> option or use the keyboard press <Ctrl><V> to place a copy of the material in the new location.
