1. Open the document and “select” the section that you want to copy.
To select a section, first place your cursor at the beginning of the material that you intend to copy, then drag your cursor over the area to be copied while holding down the left mouse button. When you reach the end of the part you want to copy, release the mouse button. The selected material will be highlighted.
2. While the section is selected, open the Edit menu and click Copy.
This copies the selected material into a special area of the computer’s memory called the Clipboard. (Note that the selection also remains where it was in the document — you’ve just made a “copy” of it in the computer’s “temporary memory.”)
3. Move your cursor to the place where you want to paste the material that you have “copied.”
(You can close and open whatever browser or document you need to. It doesn’t matter because the information you “copied” has been storied in the computer’s memory.)
4. Click when your cursor is in the correct spot that you want to “paste” the information to. A flashing line will appear where you clicked.
5. Open the Edit menu again and click on Paste.
6. The material that you copied into the Clipboard should now appear at the spot you indicated.
