Someone may have asked you to copy and paste or (cut and paste) text from an email or document. Not sure how? Its easy, read on:
First highlight the text you want to copy. You can do this by placing your mouse where the text is and holding down the left mouse button and moving your mouse across, or down, until everything you need is highlighted. You can then select edit - copy and it is now loaded into memory. Click in the area where you want to place what you copied and again select edit - paste.
Optionally, with most programs, you can line your mouse over the highlighted text and right click and choose copy or cut. (See screenshot below) You can then click where you want to paste and again right click and choose paste.
The difference between copying and cutting is just as it sounds. Choosing cut removes it and copy simply copies it. Cutting from a document or email will cause it to ask you if you want to save changes. Most times, a copy and paste is what is needed. Play around with it to see how it works for you. Its not hard and you can't hurt anything if you don't save changes
