Easiest is to left click and hold while you 'wipe' the text you want to copy. Right click and select 'copy'. Put the cursor where you want the text to appear. right click and select 'paste'. Can also be done with control and C and control and P.

Select the text with your left mouse button.
Right click whilst selected and from the drop down menu, left click "copy".
Then place your cursor where you want to copy to. Right click, then from the drop down menu left click on "paste".
That should do it.

For the future, remember that where-ever you are on the computer, if you press the F1 key a help screen will come up, on the desktop, left click on a clear piece of the screen and press F1 the os help appears, in a program, just press F1 and program help window will open.

Sorry, Neneo1 - to paste, should have said control V. P is to print
