How do I Cut, Copy and Paste?

I have been seeing this question come in many different forms while on the the statistics tracker, so I have decided to make this post and link it to the main page so that hopefully I'm making this a little easier on somebody to find. Something to keep in mind before we get started is that in Windows, there is what is refered to as a "Clipboard." When ever you make a body of text, you can drag a box over that text and manipulate it. If you right click your mouse on the text you've highlighted, a menu pops up with several options. Though there are many different things you can do from these right click menus, we are just covering these three. The following are the functions of each option, and alternate ways of executing the commands without right clicking, ya know so I can turn you into a true pro...

"Cut" remove the selected item but save to clipboard. Ctrl X

"Copy" the selected area to the clipboard, without removing from the document. Ctrl C

"Paste" the item you saved to the clipboard to the document you are editing. Ctrl V

Note: each time you Copy or Cut something new, it automatically replaces the other data you had on the clipboard. This right clicking will become addictive, if you've not been used to it before, prepare to use the force. Try to right click on a picture and then "save the image." This is where it starts getting iffy. You should always make sure that the stuff that you are using is not used in a way that could be construed as Copyright Infringement. I am no medium on these rules and regulations so I won't even begin to sort what's ok, and what's not. It's not hard to figure out though, and if you know how to be original, you won't worry to much about these rules. There are so many more options when right clicking, but at least now that question is resolved.

For more lessons and ideas for your blog or website, see my other blog, Cut|Copy|Paste. If you have any questions or comments about this post or how to apply it, please direct them there so they are catalogued with the other material.
