seeking knowledge

How do you 'copy and paste', and where does the material go to be stored ready for retrieval if required.? Help appreciated.

Go to Start>Help and Support. In the search field, type "copy and paste" (without the quotes), press the Enter key (or click on the tiny magnifying glass).

There will be a number of explanations listed there, depending on what you want to copy and paste...files, folders, text, pictures, etc.

The copied item or items are stored on the clipboard. Windows stores only one copied item at a time so when you copy something else, it replaces what was on the clipboard. The clipboard is erased when the computer is shut down.

Highlight the selection that you want to copy. Press Control and C simultaneously. Then click on the area that you want to paste it to, and press Control and V simultaneously. This is one way to do it. You can also highlight the section you want to copy, click on Edit, click on the area you want it to copy to, then click on paste.
